Career

Jane has over 20 years of experience in construction and major projects, as well as government advisory. Her clients trust her outcome driven focus and practical and responsive approach to legal service delivery.  

Jane specialises in conventionally funded Victorian State government major projects, Commonwealth major projects and procurement, major private sector real estate development, transport and energy. She has experience in all forms of construction and infrastructure procurement, from traditional forms including design and construction to relationship contracting forms (ECI, alliancing and collaboration agreements) to PPPs. 

Jane works with government clients to structure their approaches to market including provision of tendering and probity advice. She is regularly asked to peer review delivery models and project documentation, and to investigate probity compliance or act as a probity advisor on projects. She has also worked with State government agencies to develop and implement supply and procurement policies.

Jane has particular expertise in conventionally funded road and rail projects and has acted for the key agencies responsible for delivery of these projects in Victoria for more than 15 years.

Jane also focuses on the energy sector – electricity and renewables – where she advises generators, retailers and contractors.
