Kevin Arkwright - Norton Rose Fulbright

Within: Construction

Norton Rose Fulbright has seen some change, with a team of four departing to Pinsent Masons LLP; Kevin Arkwright, Graham Read  and Alex Whiteside joining as part of the firm’s merger with the now-defunct Henry Davis York; and back-end partners Penelope Ford and Phillipa Beck joining from Minter Ellison and a consultancy, respectively. One consortium of construction companies instructed the team on a high-value, high-profile PPP in Melbourne. Construction disputes are another strength of the practice. Practice head James Morgan-Payler and Grant Ahearn are well regarded.

Project development

Within: Project development

Norton Rose Fulbright has seen an increasing stream of energy sector projects, continues to handle significant transport and infrastructure work and attracted a number of PNG-related matters. Notable infrastructure work included advising the successful bidders on a high-profile PPP project in Melbourne, and acting for one construction company on a very large PPP in New South Wales. Energy-sector work has seen the team advise on wind, solar, waste-to-energy and hydropower projects. The firm also attracts mining sector projects work, an area of expertise for head of infrastructure, mining and commodities Keira Brennan. Jo Crew heads the firm’s infrastructure and project finance group, which includes James Morgan-Payler, Mark Waddell, Graham Read and Kevin Arkwright. Miriam D’Souza joined from Herbert Smith Freehills, and Alice Chen through the firm’s merger with the now-defunct Henry Davis York.
