Todd Garsden



Todd is a Partner in the community titles team at Hynes Legal.

He has spent his entire legal career at Hynes Legal after graduating from the Queensland University of Technology with a Law and Finance degree in 2012.

Todd’s primary focus is the firm’s body corporate law practice, but he also assists in many aspects of the management rights practice where the two areas regularly intertwine.

Todd has always had an interest in the property industry and enjoys the interesting blend of work that body corporate and management rights matters creates. 

Todd understands the commercial drivers for clients in their investing activities but also the ones that come from other drivers, such as the emotions that can run hot in strata matters.  He has helped clients navigate some extremely emotive issues in his time at Hynes Legal.

On the public front, Todd presents regularly to strata managers about body corporate issues and also presented at the Strata Community Association (Qld) annual conference with the Commissioner for Body Corporate and Community Management about by-law issues.

Todd has established himself as a leading practitioner in the strata sector and was recently appointed to the Strata Community Association’s (SCA) Legislation Panel Committee. In this role, Todd will work closely with other industry stakeholders in work proactively with the Government in relation to member issues. 

Todd is also a member of the Australian College of Strata Lawyers.
