Tom provides strategic advice to contractors on delay, payment and other construction-related issues on infrastructure and energy projects throughout Australia. Tom leads the firm’s adjudication practice in Australia and is the Head of Construction, Advisory and Disputes for Australia.
Tom provides first-class advice and has managed for me numerous high-value infrastructure disputes (including adjudications, court proceedings and arbitrations), with clear and well-communicated strategies that enabled excellent outcomes to be achieved. Tom’s greatest quality is simply his ability to get the job done, drawing on his knowledge of construction disputes and, in particular, his second-to-none knowledge of security of payment law.

They came up with solutions that we had not thought of, and they were proactive on many things. I thought that Tom Heading was a very keen process lawyer, but also good strategy-wise.
