Andrew Broadfoot took silk in 2016 and appears in, and advises on, trials and appeals in tax, commercial, tort and administrative law. Principally his clients are involved in the mining, petroleum and financial sectors. He has also represented Commonwealth and State government authorities in a variety of matters ranging from taxation appeals, matters concerning statutory interpretation, "serious injuries" as defined in applicable legislation, judicial review, and securities regulation, to the "Abalone class action" which concerned liability in negligence for pure economic loss arising from a herpes like virus that killed a large proportion of Victoria's wild abalone stocks. This was one of the largest class actions to run to judgment in Australia and successfully be defended.
He is experienced in dealing with expert evidence and has cross-examined experts practising in numerous disciplines including valuation, science, engineering, economics, medicine, health and safety and accounting.
In the revenue field he is experienced in dealing with transfer pricing related matters, capital/income issues, trust and property law issues, anti-avoidance legislation, research and development claims and application of the petroleum resource rent tax legislation.
Recent engagements include appearances in various tax appeals; an international commercial arbitration concerning a contract for the construction and operation of an offshore oil facility; a dispute concerning an offshore drilling campaign; claims between resource companies for breaches of fiduciary duties; partnership disputes; and advising public and private corporations on taxation and corporate law issues.
