Sebastian Greenway

Sebastian is a valued member of the Property Disputes and Compulsory Acquisitions Team in Victoria and works under the supervision of  Anton Dunhill, the leading partner in the Victorian team.

Bringing a practical and straightforward approach to the compulsory acquisition process, Sebastian is a passionate advocate for landowners’ rights and seeks to minimise the stress and anxiety associated with compulsory acquisitions for his clients.   

His commerce degree and previous experience of running a small business provide him with greater insights into the potential business impacts of compulsory acquisition. With a combination of practical and academic experience, Sebastian is well equipped to advise on the complexities of the compulsory acquisition process. He works closely with clients, walking them through their entitlements and discussing how best to protect their rights.    

Sebastian is experienced in advising landowners, tenants and businesses ranging from top ASX 200 listed companies to private individuals and not-for-profit organisations on a wide range of compulsory acquisitions, from family home acquisitions to more unique cases including:   

  • The compulsory acquisition of a Buddhist temple 
  • Relocation of a thoroughbred race horse business 
  • Disruption to a limestone quarry 
  • Relocation of a heritage listed timber business 
  • The compulsory acquisition of land ripe for residential subdivision 
  • Easement acquisitions relating to water pipes and electrical conduits.


Sebastian is also undertaking a Masters of Laws and has published articles in relation to compulsory acquisition and planning law, including the Property Law Review.   

The Property Disputes and Compulsory Acquisitions Team keeps clients well informed about their case; Sebastian is adept at assisting throughout the entire acquisition process including obtaining all necessary expert valuation, planning, tax, business and agribusiness advice which may be relevant to the case. 

Those clients who wish to become more involved in the management of their case are welcome, given it is their case and their interest in the land that has been affected.
