Pinsent Masons has hired a new construction partner, who takes to the firm’s Melbourne office.
Phillipa Beck has been confirmed as the latest to join the Pinsent Masons partnership. In her new role, Ms Beck takes to the firm’s construction advisory and disputes team.
Ms Beck joins Pinsent Masons from Norton Rose Fulbright. Throughout her career she has advised on project delivery and disputes across the energy and infrastructure sectors in the Asia-Pacific region.
In addition, Ms Beck has advised on risk management, dispute avoidance and all forms of dispute resolution matters, according to a statement from the firm.
“There is a strong and expanding pipeline of major projects across Asia Pacific. Phillipa brings valuable experience that is well suited to our sector-focused approach,” said Matthew Croagh, head of Pinsent Masons Australia.
“Her skills in advising clients on mega projects developing flexible, innovative solutions that provide the foundation for a project’s successful delivery will be an asset to the firm.”
Fraser McMillan, head of construction advisory and disputes in Australia added: “Australia ranks as a world leader in infrastructure development, but challenges around its ability to meet infrastructure demand [are] set to intensify”.
“Phillipa has the right skill set to work alongside project teams across the firm supporting clients in finding the right solutions to tackle these challenges; whether that be through joint ventures or other frameworks.”
