Rob Bradley is a property lawyer with more than 30 years of experience in solving specific, unusual and complex property related matters such as covenant and easement removals, as well as more traditional property and business law advice. In fact, he is Aitken Partners' go-to man on the unusual.

He sits on the Property Committee of the Law Institute of Victoria's Property and Environmental Law section.

Rob's commercial property experience includes working on industrial, commercial and major residential projects where he plays an active role in every step, including financing, acquisition, consolidation or subdivision, development, leasing or sale. Rob also has extensive planning experience representing permit applicants and objectors, both in their negotiations with responsible and referral authorities and before VCAT (and panels).

He works closely with planners and his experience across the spectrum of property and planning issues enables him to think outside the square in terms of traditional legal advice, to help his clients achieve the optimum outcome.

In addition, Rob has given general commercial and business advice to a range of corporations in the manufacturing, retailing and services industries. His practice also includes State taxation issues (land tax and stamp duty), town planning, valuations law, compulsory acquisitions and leasing.
