Simon Ralton (pictured) has been appointed as special counsel at Thomson Geer. He joins from MinterEllison, where he was a senior associate for 12 years.
Mr Ralton has advised a number of principal and contractor clients on major construction and infrastructure projects in Australia.
He has broad experience covering both the front-end and back-end work of construction and infrastructure projects, from drafting and negotiating project documentation to advising clients in litigation and other forms of dispute resolution.
Mr Ralton has also advised on a number of significant construction financing and M&A transactions. He brings to his new role an engineering background, having previously held engineering and management roles on mining and rail projects.
This latest appointment comes after Thomson Geer announced earlier this year that it had recruited employment law specialist David Davies.
Mr Davies joined the firm from Sparke Helmore.
