Howard Collins Chief Executive Sydney Trains - Trent Zimmerman MP Federal Member for North Sydney and Ian Mutton at Lavender Bay Heritage Train Event 12th February 2017

I’ve been the moving force behind:

  • The Sydney Harbour High Line project
  • Making Wendy’s Secret Garden permanent
  • The restoration of the Alfred Street Arch
  • The completion of Harry’s Memorial Garden (overlooking Luna Park)
  • Protecting Luna Park and securing its future

I’m the practice director of a Sydney based law firm specialising in contract related matters and competition and product liability laws.

My background?

I started out with the (then) Trade Practices Commission.

Ten years later I moved to the private sector where I was heavily involved in product liability claims around the world.

Fifteen years later I moved to manage the relationships between a Northern Ireland based energy start-up company with governments and regulators based in Belfast, Westminster and Brussels.

Five years later I started a firm that specialised in devising and implementing competition law and product liability related governance and training programs for companies in Australia, New Zealand and Europe.

I was re-elected a Councillor of North Sydney Council in 2021.
