Young’s List is delighted to welcome Nicolas Dour, who signed the Victorian Bar roll on 7 May 2020.
Nicolas Dour maintains a broad practice in commercial and public law, primarily in the fields of competition and consumer law, insurance, taxation, insolvency, class actions, regulatory investigations, and public and constitutional law.
Before being called to the Bar, Nicolas was an associate to the Hon. Justice Nettle AC of the High Court of Australia. He also developed broad commercial experience in Melbourne and London as a solicitor for over five years at Clayton Utz, at Herbert Smith Freehills LLP in London, and at the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC).
Due to his regulatory experience, Nicolas has particular knowledge in competition and consumer law, including emerging issues arising from digital platforms and the consumer data right (CDR). Following his experience in London, where he worked on complex policyholder claims, Nicolas developed experience in all aspects of insurance coverage disputes, with a focus on issues arising in building and construction, decommissioning, business interruption, and bushfire litigation.
Nicolas is also well versed in public and constitutional law, particularly in judicial review matters, including migration and medical panel determinations, and advises both private and government clients. His work in constitutional law has been cited in leading texts and by the High Court of Australia.
Nicolas holds degrees in commerce and law from Monash University. He also read for the Bachelor of Civil Law at the University of Oxford. During his studies Nicolas received several academic awards, including the Sir Rupert Cross prize in evidence at Oxford.
Nicolas is reading with Alistair Pound. His senior mentor is Peter Hanks QC.
