McCullough Robertson is welcoming another lateral Partner in November.  Ren Niemann, an infrastructure and construction law specialist, will join the firm from Allens Linklaters.

“I am excited to have the opportunity to contribute to the growth of the firm as it continues to cement its position in Queensland and grow its presence in the NSW market,” Mr Niemann said.

Bringing with him 17 years of experience, Ren’s practice focuses on all aspects of construction, infrastructure, procurement, tendering, general contracting and government services.  Having worked extensively in both Brisbane and Sydney, Ren is well positioned to cultivate the strategic link between Queensland and NSW.

While building on McCullough Robertson’s traditional resource industry strength, Ren also brings extensive experience in social and economic infrastructure, including large road and rail projects.  Most recently he has advised on the divestment of Queensland Motorways by QIC and the framework for the procurement of the Gateway Upgrade North project.

“McCullough Robertson has a strong presence in the construction field and this is a great chance for me to build on my experience and offer a fresh perspective to existing clients.  Being an independent firm, McCullough Robertson will give me the opportunity to have more hands-on ‘on the ground’ involvement with my clients and deliver a more intimate service” Mr Niemann said.

Ren has significant experience in the Public Private Partnership (PPP) field, which allows the firm to offer clients considerable depth in this space. He has a high profile in the government services sector, which will reinforce McCullough Robertson’s reputation in this field.

McCullough Robertson’s Managing Partner Guy Humble certainly shares Mr Niemann’s enthusiasm and is excited about the future with a full project delivery team in place.

“Ren brings to the team a unique set of skills and experience, which coupled with our already 27 member strong construction team, allows the firm to offer the best possible service to our clients in the construction arena. His PPP knowledge, along with his strong presence in the government sector will bring McCullough Robertson to the fore on these issues,” Mr Humble said.

“Having been based in both Sydney and Brisbane, Ren is well positioned to assist clients with tailored, local knowledge and has a comprehensive understanding of the needs of a firm which, whilst based in three cities is not bound by geography and operates nationally,” Mr Humble said.

With extensive experience in Australia and in the Asia Pacific region, Ren will commence on 1 November.

Ren joins fellow construction lawyer, Adam Wallwork who joined the firm in August from King & Wood Mallesons.  Adam is based in McCullough Robertson’s rapidly growing Sydney office.
