The measured economic recovery from the global financial crisis presents a number of opportunities and challenges for the construction, engineering and infrastructure industries in Australia — as governments and the private sector seek to plan, procure and deliver the projects Australia needs to boost productivity and ensure sustainable growth.
In the past five years, Minter Ellison’s construction team has been the lead adviser on more than 150 nationally significant construction and infrastructure projects and disputes. We focus on client requirements in the broad areas of infrastructure (social and economic), procurement and project delivery, property development, energy and resources, dispute resolution and prevention, contract administration and legislative and regulatory requirements.
Our construction experience extends beyond Australia. In Asia, we have extensive experience and are recognised leaders in construction law in Hong Kong and the People’s Republic of China.
Our team delivers comprehensive advice on construction and infrastructure development, particularly in project delivery models (including relationship-based and collaborative models), traditional procurement methods and risk management strategies. Our clients represent the leading participants at all stages of the project lifecycle — developers, principals, financiers and investors, plus a number of state governments and agencies.
With more than 30 years’ experience advising businesses in the sector, we thoroughly understand the complexities of the construction and infrastructure industries. We apply this knowledge to provide innovative and practical solutions, delivering the best commercial outcomes for our clients.
