Michael Nas

Senior Associate

Michael joined Bennett + Co at its commencement in February 2011 in the Commercial Litigation and Dispute Resolution section of the firm. Michael practises primarily in the Supreme Court of Western Australia and has broad experience in the conduct of major litigation, particularly for ASX-listed entities. Michael’s practice focuses on contractual disputes arising in the mining and resources sector, as well as Corporations Act matters (such as statutory demands) and personal insolvency. Michael also has a particular interest in aviation law and has recently completed a research thesis (Master of Laws by Research, conferred February 2016) in that area, focusing on the regulation of Unmanned Aircraft Systems and the integration of these systems into public airspace. Michael hopes to build his practice in the aviation law area using his Master’s thesis as a platform.
