Thomas Pikusa Barrister

Before joining the Bar, Tom worked as a solicitor in the property development field.  He spent his last 5 years as a solicitor at Gadens in Melbourne in the property, development and construction group.

Since 2003, Tom’s practice has continued to focus on areas of law involving the property development industry spanning planning, environmental, property and construction law. 

Tom has been involved in a wide range of property development matters including:

  • Planning and local government disputes of all sorts, acting for developers, Councils and objectors;
  • Environmental cases involving state and Federal environmental laws concerning heritage, land contamination, wind farms and climate change; 
  • Front and back end construction and development matters involving, amongst other things, the privatisation of Victorian trams and trains, prisons, paper mills and airport terminals;
  • Large scale commercial and industrial sale and acquisition matters (acting for vendors and purchasers);
  • Property disputes involving the sale of land, leasing, easements and restrictive covenants;
  • Long running matters including acting for the then Building Commission, now the Victorian Building Authority, in the 2009 Bushfires Royal Commission and for objector groups in the 2014 East-West Tunnel hearing.

Tom’s background in architecture provides him with a unique ability to read and understand building plans and building documentation.  His breadth of experience across the property development field provides him with a valuable perspective in his area of practice.
