Tom provides strategic commercial advice to contractor clients involved in distressed infrastructure and energy projects throughout Australia. Tom advises on delay, variation, payment, security, defects and other common construction-related issues.
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.
