In 2021, Colin resigned his Judicial Commission and has since returned to the Bar providing services as a barrister, arbitrator and mediator with a principal focus on alternative dispute resolution.  Colin also practises as senior counsel in a variety of legal areas and mentors junior lawyers, particularly in family law.

Colin has a wealth of knowledge gained from over 33 years within the industry. It is a rare opportunity to hear from, and engage with, a distinguished individual within the legal profession, especially one with such broad and varied experiences.
