  • Successfully acted for owners corporations, builders and developers in several multi-million dollar defects claims in the  Supreme Court.
  • Won numerous claims relating to defects and delay damages in the NSW Civil and Administrative Tribunal.
  • Achieved multimillion dollar settlements from large financial service providers on behalf of clients.
  • Successfully defended clients in appeals to the High Court of Australia.
  • Won Tribunal orders requiring owners corporations to approve special by-laws for renovations by lot owners on several  occasions.
  • Obtained orders for repair and compensation by owners corporations due to their failure to maintain and repair common  property.

Ben Johnson represented me calmly and confidently at my strata mediation and subsequently prepared and submitted the application, motion and by-law for my major renovation. His attitude and pragmatism were as crucial as his experience and expertise to the achievement of my desired outcomes. My only regret is that I didn't seek his counsel when my strata dispute first arose!
