Darren Phillips - Managing Director, Seacoast Homes Pty Ltd


"I have Known Mr Robert Zikmann both personally and professionally for more than ten years. During this time I found myself in the uncomfortable position of needing the services of a Barrister in a complicated and protracted building dispute.

At the time I was the director of a residential building company. The dispute was a contractual dispute with a particularly difficult client. Despite our best efforts and the efforts of my legal team we were unable to resolve the dispute.

The proceedings were first heard in the Consumer Trader & Tenancy Tribunal. This was followed by appeals to first the Supreme Court and then the NSW Court of Appeal where we were eventually successful and were completely vindicated.

The dispute ran for many years, during which time Rob proved to be a great manager, advisor, and legal representative. His patience and attention to detail impressed me greatly. His determination to see our position vindicated and ongoing support was invaluable.

I have no hesitation in recommending Rob to any builder who may require the services of a more than competent legal professional."
