Norman Donato

Partner / President
Bartier Perry / Commercial Law Association of Australia

For over 30 years Norman has worked in corporate, commercial and finance law, often managing highly complex cases. He is a specialist in the banking and finance sector, particularly in securities and duties law. Norman advises national and international clients along with government bodies such as local councils, major banks and publicly listed companies.

Clients appreciate Norman’s problem solving ability and his never-say-die attitude when it comes to helping them get the best results. They also appreciate his commercial focus, which stems in part from working for seven years as an in-house counsel at the State Bank of NSW, as well as in the indirect tax division of Coopers & Lybrand (now PwC).

Norman is also a regular speaker and presents seminars on a range of topics including Director’s Duties, Privacy and Ecommerce.
