After a career as a legal academic at the University of Sydney combined with some practice at the Bar, Dr Austin was a partner in Minter Ellison from 1990 to 1998.  He practised in the M&A and general corporate field. Important matters included the demutualisation of the AMP Society (1996) and the legal component for establishment of the CHESS settlement system for ASX.    After his retirement from the bench he resumed legal practice with Minter Ellison from 2010 to 2015, and was involved in corporate acquisitions, including by scheme of arrangement, transactions and issues relating to banks and life insurance companies, managed investment schemes and superannuation schemes, and corporate advisory work for listed company boards.  He returned to the Bar in July 2015.

Dr Austin is co-author of Ford, Austin and Ramsay’s Principles of Corporations Law (LexisNexis, 16th edition, 2015, and looseleaf), Austin and Black’s Annotated Corporations Act (LexisNexis, looseleaf), and Austin, Ford and Ramsay on Company Directors (2005), and many articles and papers on corporate law.
