McCullough Robertson’s Sydney office is welcoming another lateral partner this month.  Adam Wallwork, a construction law specialist, will join the firm from King & Wood Mallesons. 

As McCullough Robertson celebrates the fourth anniversary of the opening of its Sydney office, it is cementing its place as a key player in the New South Wales (NSW) legal market.  Earlier this year the firm secured the talents of corporate Partner Adrian Smith from DLA Piper and property law Partner Justin Madden, along with senior associates Fiona Mudie, Emma Smythies and Simone Nokes from Henry Davis York. 

“This is a really exciting time for both me and the firm.  I have joined at a time when McCullough Robertson is starting to express its ‘can do’ personality on the NSW market,” Mr Wallwork said.

“There is a big opportunity here to expand on our existing construction service offering in NSW and I want to be part of it.

“Because we are an independent firm we have a very different value proposition.  We can offer clients a premium service but deliver this in a no-fuss streamlined way.”

Adam specialises in all aspects of the negotiation, documentation and administration of major construction, PPP infrastructure, civil engineering, resources, power, facilities management and maintenance projects. 

“With McCullough Robertson’s strong reputation in the resources and real estate sectors there will be significant opportunities in the NSW market to build on this,” Mr Wallwork said.

McCullough Robertson’s Managing Partner Guy Humble certainly shares Mr Wallwork’s enthusiasm and is excited about the future of the Sydney office now that a full project delivery team is in place.

“You can see from Adam’s desire to jump right in, become part of our Construction team and get started, that he is the right fit for the firm and for our Sydney office.” Mr Humble said.

“Our Construction team has a national footprint working on projects across Australia and South-East Asia.  We regularly have had a number of our Construction Partners working between Brisbane and Sydney but our NSW offering has developed from being a practice that supports our existing clients with NSW projects to one where we are acting on major infrastructure, coal and rail projects.  These clients are looking for the commercial and technical advice that we provide – it is based on years of industry experience across various sectors.”

Adam will be supported by a team of construction lawyers based in Sydney who have been with the firm for a number of years.

With extensive experience in Australia and overseas across various sectors within industry, Adam will commence on 21 August.
