Major construction and infrastructure projects require careful structuring for successful delivery. Our expert lawyers understand the need to work within prevailing market conditions, while looking critically ahead to foresee where challenges might arise during project delivery.
We advise clients in all sectors on procurement and supply chain structuring for their projects. We have extensive experience in all forms of project delivery. We tailor both a procurement solution to ensure cost efficiency and an appropriate ‘go to market’ strategy, and a supply chain strategy that properly navigates complex inter-related arrangements across the supply chain.
Our procurement support involves working closely with our clients’ procurement teams and commercial advisers to understand their objectives and develop strategies to achieve them, from cutting edge and innovative procurement and structuring models to simple, expedited or streamlined procurement process. Our multi-sector experience in Australia and internationally enables us to advise at all stages of this process.
Our supply chain support involves advising clients on the effective management of supply chain complexities, including contractual risks, cross-border legal issues, pass through, dispute resolution alignment, and the impact of regulatory requirements (including competition, tax, payment models, anti-money laundering (AML) and anti-bribery requirements) on that supply chain.
