Joseph is a construction and infrastructure specialist in the areas of project delivery, outsourcing and dispute resolution. He advises government and the private sector (including financiers, sponsors, principals and contractors) on all aspects of project and infrastructure delivery across a range of sectors, including education, health, property, energy and resources, transport and water.
He immerses himself in projects during the tender phase in order to understand the technical detail and then supports his clients through project delivery with strategic and practical guidance. His experience through all stages of project procurement gives him keen insight into the issues and risks facing clients during the implementation of large and complex projects, something which he brings to the table early and proves invaluable during tender design and contract negotiation.
His experience spans the full range of contract delivery models, from traditional D&C, EPC, DBOM and PPP models, to relationship-based alliance contracting. He has represented clients in superior courts, arbitration, expert determinations and statutory adjudications.
Joseph is a guest lecturer in Masters of Construction Law at the University of Melbourne.
