Our legal experts advise on the full spectrum of construction, procurement and contracting matters, with expertise in all aspects of infrastructure development, including planning and environment, finance, native title, property, occupational health and safety, and dispute resolution. 

We work with proponents, smaller subcontracting businesses and larger project consortia participants to help them understand the legal options associated with their project from start to finish, minimising the potential for costly and avoidable disputes. 

We advise across the full suite of delivery models, including Public Private Partnerships (PPPs), Early Contractor Involvement (ECI), Alliances, Design and Construct (D&C), Build Own Operate Transfer (BOOT), Engineering, Procurement, Construction and Management (EPCM) and more.
