CORRS Chambers Westgarth has hired a former Baker & McKenzie partner to its construction practice in Sydney. 


The firm said the appointment of Andrew Chew has boosted its major projects and energy and resources capability. 


Chew was a partner in the construction group at Bakers, specialising in major projects. He is a qualified engineer and a Mandarin speaker, and was formerly with Mallesons Stephen Jaques.


The new partner has experience across various infrastructure and resources fields, the firm said, including public-private partnerships and alliancing projects.  


He has worked on a number of Australia's most significant transport, mining, energy and water infrastructure projects, as well as public and social housing facilities.


Chew's most recent experience include LNG projects such as Curtis LNG and Gladstone LNG; major PPPs including the Peninsula Link project, new Royal Adelaide Hospital, and the Mundaring Water Treatment Plant; and rail infrastructure projects such as Regional Rail Link, South-West Rail Link, North-South Railway in Saudi Arabia.


He has also advised on significant resources projects, including the Mount Owen Mine, Ravensworth North Mine and Ulan West Mine developments.


Corrs partner & CEO John Denton said: “Andrew’s arrival is further evidence of Corrs’ commitment to building world class capability to support our clients in successfully delivering major infrastructure projects.  We have now expanded our national construction team by six partners in two years.”
