Luke was admitted as an Australian lawyer in 2005, to the Supreme Court of New South Wales and Queensland and has over 12 years of experience practising law in the Asia Pacific region.
He commenced his career with Australia’s largest law firm, Minter Ellison in their corporate and litigation teams, and later moved to Thomson Playford (now, Thomson Geer). Luke has since taken on various senior in-house legal roles, including the position of:
- Regional General Counsel, Asia Pacific for an international and UK listed recruitment firm;

Prior to attending law school, and to some extent during his legal career, Luke’s commercial experience, included several years of working in senior business development and marketing roles with IBM, Compaq, HP and VMware.
As an entrepreneur at heart, Luke founded Good Capital Group (GCG) in 2014 which started with the founding of a law firm, Teneo Legal, as its first business, which specialises in property, employment and commercial law. In the same year GCG acquired a boutique law firm, Sydney Property Conveyancing, which specialises purely in property conveyancing and has been in operation for over a decade.
In 2016, GCG co-founded EG Consulting in the interest of providing credible recruitment services to candidates and employers within the legal and accounting space, and in the third quarter of 2016, GCG founded GoodKeeper, a modern and professional bookkeeping services company, with the aim of making bookkeeping easy for its clients with the premise of simplicity combined with technical credibility.
