A Sydney lawyer has left a national partnership to take on a new role leading the construction practice group for a NewLaw firm.
Aaron Suine has left the Piper Alderman office in Sydney to establish a new construction and infrastructure group at LegalVision. He has previously worked as a lawyer and senior associate in the Sydney offices of MinterEllison and Norton Rose Fulbright respectively.
Mr Suine has been involved in a number of infrastructure projects as well as various residential, commercial and industrial property developments, acting for major developers, contractors, consultants and suppliers.
In a statement announcing Mr Suine’s new role, the firm said he will advise on procurement strategies, tendering and contract negotiation. This work will see LegalVision’s new construction practice leader collaborate with its corporate and property teams.
Commenting on his appointment, Mr Suine said he is looking forward to the opportunities and challenges ahead. He suggested that the firm’s unique approach to legal service delivery will enable him to “work more flexibly and efficiently so as to provide a high-quality service to construction clients at a lower cost”.
LegalVision CEO Lachlan McKnight said he is “thrilled” to welcome Mr Suine to the team.
“As our clients demand legal advice in the construction and infrastructure space, we are fortunate to have someone with such exceptional experience and skill to join our team.
“His appointment reflects our commitment to attracting top talent and serving our growing enterprise client base,” Mr McKnight said.
LegalVision received the award for Innovator of the Year at the Lawyers Weekly Australian Law Awards in October.
