Construction & Major Projects

Spacer Panel


Our construction and major projects team advises major NSW and Commonwealth Government agencies and private sector organisations with significant infrastructure priorities. Our clients include Transport for NSW, the Department of Defence, Sydney Airport and Lend Lease. 

We provide a full range of services from initial development proposals and drafting documentation to administering contracts and resolving disputes.
Our team is currently acting on some of Australia's most strategic construction and infrastructure projects and has an outstanding track record in achieving results through litigation, arbitration and other forms of alternative dispute resolution.

Really good-quality experts who provide learned, prompt advice. They have the benefit of being a bit more nimble and have built real experts in their areas. You have the access to experts you would not normally get in a larger firm.
