McCullough Robertson provides an even higher level of project capability with the arrival of new dispute resolution Sydney Partner Jennifer Turner
3 November 2015
After moving into brand new premises up on Levels 32 and 33 of the MLC Centre, McCullough Robertson’s Sydney office is providing an even higher level of service in the construction and major projects sectors with the appointment of dispute resolution Partner Jennifer Turner who joined the firm yesterday (2 November 2015) from King & Wood Mallesons (KWM).
As McCullough Robertson, one of Australia’s leading independent law firms, marks five years in Sydney, it also cements its place as a key player in the New South Wales (NSW) legal market with 10 Partners and a focus on assisting its clients to not only develop major projects but also to reduce their risk and manage any claims and disputes down the track.
Jennifer has more than 15 years’ experience in dispute resolution for construction, engineering and infrastructure projects across Australia. She is listed in Best Lawyers 2016 as one of Australia’s leading Construction lawyers.
“I’m delighted to be joining McCullough Robertson as it continues to build on its excellent reputation in construction and major projects,” Ms Turner said.
“It’s an exciting opportunity for me to contribute to the growth and diversity of the firm nationally and particularly in NSW.”
Jennifer is reuniting with former KWM colleague, front end construction Partner Adam Wallwork who moved to McCullough Robertson in August 2014. Previously a Special Counsel at KWM, Jennifer will be supported by a team of construction and projects lawyers based in Sydney, Brisbane and Newcastle.
McCullough Robertson’s Chairman of partners, Dominic McGann is excited about the future of the Sydney office and the construction team now that both the front and back end of this team is in place.
“Having Jennifer join Adam in our Projects team in Sydney will mean that we are even better placed to deliver that full project lifecycle approach, both front and back end, that NSW major projects require,” Mr McGann said.
“Our Construction team has a national footprint with seven Partners based in Brisbane, Sydney and Newcastle, working on projects across Australia and South-East Asia.”
Mr McGann said he was particularly delighted to be appointing another female Partner to the firm and increasing the gender diversity at the senior level.
“McCullough Robertson is committed to gender equity. It’s critical for achieving sustainable business performance in a dynamic and changing world,” Mr McGann said.
“Jennifer’s addition to our firm takes the number of female Partners to 20%. While we still have a long way to go to achieve parity, we are certainly heading in the right direction.”
Jennifer is scheduled to speak on project disputes at the firm’s Construction Workshop on 19 November.
