Maddocks has revealed it has appointed Sefton Warner as a special counsel. His new role sees Mr Warner join the firm’s Melbourne-based construction and projects team.
Mr Warner brings to his new role vast experience in advising on extensive front-end construction projects, both in Australia and overseas. His clientele includes public and private sector companies, as well as principals, developers, contractors and financiers across many industries.
Mr Warner has been recognised for his work in the latest edition of Best Lawyers and was named a ‘rising star’ in construction/infrastructure in Doyle’s Guide, according to a statement from Maddocks.
Partner and Melbourne head of the construction and projects practice team, Simone Holding, welcomed Mr Warner to the team.
“One of Sefton’s great strengths is the experience and knowledge he has gained working on some of the biggest PPP projects of the past decade,” Ms Holding said.
“Maddocks’ construction and projects team works closely with both the public and private sectors on both the front and back end of construction projects.
“Sefton’s appointment further bolsters our offering to clients.”
Maddocks construction and projects national practice group head Andrew Pitney added that Mr Warner’s appointment comes as the firm looks set to continue its “strategic growth” in the sector.
“With the appointment of Sefton and of special counsel Catherine Baxter in Sydney late last year, we are continuing to grow and build on our capacity and capability in infrastructure and major projects,” Mr Pitney said.
