General Counsel, Legal & Governance
Luke joined UniSuper in 2008 and is responsible for leading UniSuper’s legal team across all areas of its business, ensuring that UniSuper’s legal position is well protected for the benefit of our members. Luke has around 20 years' experience in the financial services industry, working with the trustees and directors of some of Australia's leading superannuation funds and investment managers on major legal, risk and governance projects, including dispute resolution and litigation.
In that time, he has been involved in establishing, merging and restructuring some of Australia’s largest superannuation funds and investment products and has been deeply involved in the selection and appointment of major service providers, such as custodians, administrators and investment managers.
Luke is an active participant in the superannuation industry and is currently the Chair of the Law Council of Australia's Superannuation Committee. This is the peak body for superannuation legal practitioners and is a role that sees him proactively involved in the regulatory reform process, consulting with Government, Treasury and regulators. Luke is also directly involved in UniSuper’s own engagement with Government and regulators on law reform proposals that stand to impact UniSuper and its members.
He has previously held senior legal positions with leading law firm Allens Linklaters and with Vanguard Investments, one of the world's largest fund managers.
