Infrastructure and Construction

AH offers a specialist approach to infrastructure and construction projects. The successful completion of a major infrastructure project involves the consideration of a number of complex legal disciplines. Construction projects likewise involve consideration of a complex web of planning and environment, real estate and building and construction related laws. AH lawyers have the expertise and ingenuity to deliver superior outcomes, an approach which is facilitated by our collaborative approach and commitment to providing value and client focussed legal advice. AH takes a “complete approach” to construction matters, with our lawyers experienced in navigating both “front” and “back-end” legal issues.

AH Partner Keith Redenbach has over two decades of experience as an industry recognised leader in providing infrastructure and construction law advice. Keith was formerly head of the NSW Government and Construction & Engineering teams at Norton Rose Fulbright. Keith brings quality experience in managing high-profile and complex matters for government clients, including the Department of Defence, Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO), Government Property NSW and Transport for NSW.
