Construction

Within: Construction

Piper Alderman’s ‘excellent’ team is ‘hard to fault’ and ‘gives direct access to the most experienced partners, who provide immediate responses’. The broad practice has particular expertise acting for contractors, recently advising Watpac Construction on the demolition of Brisbane’s former Royal Children’s hospital and the construction of a public health facility, forming the first stage of the Herston Quarter redevelopment; the matter was led by the ‘commercially savvyTed Williams, whose ‘industry standing carries weight in negotiations with other parties’. The ‘very commercialTim Coleman assisted Ridley with the redevelopment of Sydney’s education department building into a 6-star hotel. Geoff Emmett, an ‘exceptional lawyer who always adds value’, assisted Coopers Brewery in relation to the design and construction of a facility, Coopers’ largest single facilities investment in its 155 years of operation. Also recommended are Megan Calder, who ‘understands the industry’ and ‘gets things done’ and Tim Lange, a ‘thought-leader who is focused on providing solutions’. The five-partner team, which is led by Emmett, has been bolstered by Robert Riddell and special counsel Daniel Fitzpatrick arriving from Dentons.
