Daniel V Aghion

Daniel completed undergraduate degrees in Arts (majoring in French) and Law at Monash University.

He served his articles at Home Wilkinson and Lowry in Melbourne (now HWL Ebsworth) and worked briefly as a construction lawyer in Sydney before being called to the Victorian Bar in 1997.

In 2002, Daniel completed a Master of Laws at the University of Melbourne. Areas of specialisation within that course included commercial equity and trade practices, negligence, insurance, construction, evidence and procedure.

At the Bar, Daniel has developed a broad civil and commercial litigation practice, including advice and appearances in matters concerning property, commercial and contract law, equity, trade practices, insurance and professional negligence, construction, and torts.

In 2013, Chambers and Partners Global and Asia-Pacific ranked Daniel as one of Australiaís leading junior barristers.

Daniel maintains an abiding interest in the community, and believes that those who have benefited professionally from the law carry an obligation to return some of that benefit to the community. To that end, he is always prepared to consider requests from solicitors to act on a pro bono basis in appropriate matters.

In 2012, Daniel was a shortlisted nominee for the Victorian Barís Susan Crennan AO QC pro bono award. In 2013, he was a shortlisted nominee for the Victorian Bar Pro Bono Trophy.
