A property and construction lawyer has left his national firm in Brisbane to join another major national player.
Ronald Yuen (pictured) has commenced a new role with Gadens’ property and construction practice group after more than three years with Colin Biggers & Paisley.
Mr Yuen, who formerly worked as a senior associate with CPB in Brisbane, is the new planning and environment director within the property and construction practice group for Gadens. His particular specialty lies in the areas of planning infrastructure, government, environment and property development, a statement from Gadens said.
The Queensland lawyer has represented clients in both public and private sectors for the full gamut of planning matters. He has also advised a number of local governments and distributor retailers. Mr Yuen has also worked on development and community master planning projects throughout the state.
Speaking of his new appointment, Mr Yuen said that he was “delighted” to be joining a firm with a reputation for client service.
“Mr Yuen has extensive experience in providing strategic advice and solutions to complex matters and transactions concerning infrastructure and developments, drafting and negotiating infrastructure agreements, preparing statutory instruments and conducting complex litigation in the Planning and Environment Court, Land Court and Supreme Court of Queensland,” Gadens said.
Mr Yuen’s move was preceded by another large coup for Gadens, following the hire of former CBP lawyer Paul Muscat and his entire procurement and construction team from the same firm.
