About

Steven Cominos has particular expertise in corporate and financial services law, regulatory investigations and general commercial disputes.

Background

Prior to being called to the Bar in 2015, Steven practised as a solicitor with Clayton Utz, the corporate regulator (ASIC) and spent 8 years working as an in-house counsel in the investment banking sector in London and Sydney, most recently with the Swiss bank, UBS AG.

This experience has given Steven a strong understanding of the practical drivers of commercial transactions and contracts from a client’s perspective and has helped him develop a practical, solutions-based approach to advising clients and resolving disputes.

Steven's expertise has been developed through advising clients on numerous large capital markets transactions and innovative investment products, important corporate law and regulatory reform (FSR, FOFA, PPSA, OTC derivatives) and negotiating and settling disputes involving complex financial products and commercial contracts.
