Construction in Australia

Baker & McKenzie's Construction Group attracts the highest calibre of work, acting on large and often multi-jurisdictional construction transactions domestically and internationally. Our Group has advised on major transactions involving water, transport, major residential projects, education and research institutions and renewable energy projects in Australia.

We advise on all stages of a construction transaction in various project types, which have included:

  • Commercial and industrial facilities;
  • Hotels, resorts and tourism projects;
  • Major residential projects; and
  • Infrastructure projects, including energy, mining, transport and telecommunications infrastructure.

In addition to our transactional work, we also advise on construction and engineering project disputes in both Australia and overseas, and offer considerable experience with respect to complicated multi-jurisdictional disputes. The ability to draw on the resources of Baker & McKenzie's global platform is central to our success in these matters, providing our clients with knowledge and experience from world-class practice. This, coupled with our commercially pragmatic focus, has ensured our continued instruction from major national and international institutions.
