About the Commissioner

Greg May commenced his role as South Australia’s first Legal Profession Conduct Commissioner on 1 July 2014. 

Commissioner May is one of South Australia’s most experienced and well regarded commercial lawyers, having worked in the private legal sector for nearly 30 years, including holding senior executive positions over the last 15 years.  He served as a member of the former Legal Practitioners Complaints Committee for more than five years.

"I am committed to ensuring those who use a lawyer in South Australia are properly protected from lawyers who don’t provide a reasonably competent service, or whose behavior means that they are not fit and proper persons to be lawyers. 

My aim is always to carry out my functions in a way that is fair to everyone involved.” Commissioner Greg May

The Commissioner has expertise in many areas of the law, particularly focussing on corporate and commercial law, superannuation, taxation and estate planning.

A former partner of the Adelaide legal firm Minter Ellison, Commissioner May also has experience in addressing client relationship problems, resolving disputes and dealing with workplace issues.

Further information about the Commissioner's appointment is in the official announcement made by South Australia's Attorney-General John Rau.
