Matthew Burgess


As a director of View Legal, Matthew specializes in trusts, tax, superannuation, asset protection, estate and succession planning and related areas, and has been recognized in the ‘Best Lawyers’ list since 2014 in relation to trusts and estates. He has enjoyed developing a number of innovative legal products for advisers and their clients, including establishing what is generally regarded as Australia's first virtual law firm. He speaks for many industry associations, accounting firms, financial advisers and commercial businesses, on a variety of specialist legal topics. Since 2010, he has increasingly provided assistance to other professional service firms in re-engineering their business models. In early 2006 he gave away the family television (effectively replicating for his 4 daughters the TV free upbringing he had). He’s published a collection of illustrated children’s stories in addition to his multiple published law related books and business book “The Dream Enabler.”
