James Hickey holds a Bachelor of Laws degree and Bachelor of Commerce degree (Finance and Accounting).

Since my admission as a Solicitor in 2006, I have acted exclusively in the area of mortgage and finance law. I have accrued extensive experience in the areas of mortgage advances, mortgage litigation and debt recovery. I am primarily responsible for overseeing Elliott May’s mortgage and caveat lending work in Queensland, New South Wales, Victoria, South Australia and Western Australia. The lending transactions undertaken by the Elliott May advance division encompass all forms of finance, including short term and bridging finance, mezzanine finance, construction finance, commercial finance, and consumer finance.

In addition to this, I am responsible for managing matters in a number of directly aligned and integrated areas (in all of the above-mentioned states), including the following:

  • Credit litigation in numerous areas including, mortgage litigation, caveat disputes, priority disputes, factoring disputes and lease disputes;
  • Proceedings within the corporate insolvency and bankruptcy spheres, in relation to the recovery of debts; and
  • Regulatory and licensing considerations for lenders, particularly relating to lenders conducting activities under the National Consumer Credit Protection Act.
