Bree Miechel joins the firm’s projects practice, based in Sydney, for her new role, bringing with her vast expertise advising on global energy and infrastructure deals across Asia, the Middle East and Australia.

Ms Miechel joins Ashurst from the Singapore office of Reed Smith, where she was a partner.

“We are thrilled to welcome Bree to our Infrastructure practice in Sydney,” said Angus Foley, Ashurst practice group head, APAC, transport and infrastructure.


“Bree is a consummate professional with impressive industry expertise in both the transport and energy sectors.

“She is a versatile practitioner who will provide a strong technical capability in the design and construction procurement aspect of the practice and also brings additional knowledge and contacts in the Asian markets, plus language expertise.”

Ashurst Sydney office managing partner, Harvey Weaver, offered a similar sentiment. 

“Bree complements our team in Sydney well and her depth of international experience and versatility will provide a great deal of value for clients,” he said.

“Bree has acted for high profile Asian, European and US clients on power (conventional, renewables and transmission), oil & gas, water & waste and transport projects and on commercial property developments across Australia, Asia, the Middle East, Africa, Europe and the Americas.

“Her addition therefore enhances the strength of our infrastructure team both domestically and from a global perspective.”

Commenting on her new role, Ms Miechel said she was delighted to be joining Ashurst’s market-leading infrastructure practice” in Sydney.

“I am also excited to return to Sydney from Singapore and look forward to contributing to the growth of the firm across both transport and energy sectors, and collaborating as part of a larger, global team for Ashurst’s clients,” she said.
