Graham Platford


Graham focuses mainly on commercial matters but continues to find that his clients’ problems require knowledge gained from his early practice across a broad spectrum. In consequence, he has not confined his practice closely and brings great breadth of understanding and knowledgeable analysis to all his work.

He is familiar with courts at all levels, various tribunals, arbitration, adjudication, enquiries and mediation. He is noted for his speedy service and approachability, including by direct access in suitable cases.

He believes he learned more about litigation (notably from the litigant’s point of view) and trial advocacy (particularly how to cross-examine and how not to) in the five days he spent in court as successful defendant in a claim of professional negligence (McFaddens v Graham Platford [2009] PNLR 26).
