Anthony Arrow is making the unusual switch from in-house lawyer to private practice, leaving the construction company John Holland to become a partner at Allens Arthur Robinson.
Entering the in-house arena at John Holland in 2005, the infrastructure and construction lawyer will rejoin the world of private practice within Allens' projects team based in Melbourne, from May 2010.
Arrow has significant experience in front-end construction and major infrastructure projects gained during his stint at John Holland, including his recent work on the Victorian Desalination Plant PPP, the Peninsula Link PPP and the Ararat Prison PPP projects.
Allens chairman Ewen Crouch said in a statement that while Allens is committed to promoting from within the firm, it would hire top quality lateral partners with the right expertise. "Anthony very much fills that criteria and has specific knowledge and expertise that will be of a great benefit to the firm..." Crouch said.
Arrow will work closely with partner Emma Warren and her team in Melbourne pursuing opportunities in major construction and infrastructure projects within and beyond Victoria.
