Richard has a broad range of experience in advising on construction contracts, commercial, construction rectification works and construction disputes. He acts for developers, builders, estate agents, subcontractors, owners’ corporations and owners in front-end contract drafting and back-end disputes, rectification and litigation.
Richard approaches his work with commercial outcomes in mind. He spent time as inhouse counsel with the Victorian Government’s property developer and urban renewal authority and understands what is truly important to our clients.
Richard’s experience includes advising on security of payment claims (for both claimants and respondents), and on construction claims for various parties in VCAT and before relevant courts. He also advises on construction and development consortium arrangements (including funding and disputes between consortium members) and on builder’s warranty claims, construction insurance policies and other constructionrelated indemnities. He has assisted in the resolution of commercial, construction and property disputes (including claims arising from latent conditions in construction projects), debt recovery matters, and misleading and deceptive conduct claims.
Richard works closely with Jobs Australia, the national peak body which helps not-for-profit employment and community services all over Australia to provide the best possible assistance to disadvantaged communities and people.
