Max Meyer was one of the first lawyers accredited as a Family Law Specialist in New South Wales.
He was admitted to practice in 1971. He was the partner in charge of the Family Law Group at Marshall Marks Kennedy for 11 years. He then founded the firm of Meyer Pigdon, then later Meyer Partners Family Lawyers. He is now Special Counsel at Pearson Emerson Meyer Family Lawyers.
Max is a member of the New South Wales Law Society and the Family Law Section of the Law Council of Australia. He was one of the first two lawyers practising in New South Wales to have been elected as a Fellow of the elite International Academy of Family Lawyers. Max is the first elected President of the newly formed Asia Pacific Chapter of the International Academy of Family Lawyers and has been appointed to the IAFL Nominating Committee.
He was the only Australian lawyer to be invited to contribute the chapter on Australian family law to "Family Law Jurisdictional Comparisons" published by Thomson Reuters in 2011, an industry internationally recognised and distributed book on international family law. He has now revised this for the 2nd, 3rd and 4th editions. More recently, Max has been invited to contribute the chapter on Australian family law to the third edition of “Family Law and Practice in Hong Kong” published by Sweet & Maxwell. Max has also been invited to contribute towards the Australian Chapter within the 2019 edition of “The International Comparative Legal Guide to Family Law. He often speaks on family law issues including at international conferences.
He has acted in major cases including international financial disputes on marital breakdown, and other disputes for high profile and high net worth professional and business clients. A number of his cases have established legal precedent.
