Dominic Emmett Australian Museum of Design Founding Member Advisory Group

With an appreciation of Australian art design, heritage restoration and the preservation of art for future generations, Dominic Emmett has been an advocate for Australian artists for more than 20 years.

As an avid supporter of Australian history, Dominic has exquisitely restored his Georgian style townhouse in Dawes Point. Originally built in 1841-43 it was carefully restored down to details such as period books in bookcases, antique furniture, four-poster beds and fully working Marulan marble fireplaces. Generously, Dominic opens his home to the National Trust for viewing by the public.

Patrons seeking to view classic Australian design and construction from this era are able to experience traditional architecture from sandstone blocks with cedar joinery, pure period colourways, and a featured traditional wallpaper.

He is recognised by his peers and clients as a preeminent Restructuring Lawyer in the Australian legal market. Dominic specialises in non-contentious restructuring and insolvency work for banks and financial institutions as well as special situations groups and credit funds. His 30 year experience includes having taken lead roles on situations such as Ansett, Alinta Energy, Centro, Allco Finance, Channel Nine, the Ten Network, Slater & Gordon, Atlas Iron, Paladin Energy, Bis Industries, Boart Longyear, Arrium, Billabong, Mirabela Nickel, Cross City Tunnel, River City, Brisconnections and Bluewaters.
