HFW extends construction capability with Special Counsel hire

27 November 2015

International law firm Holman Fenwick Willan (HFW) continues to expand its Australian Construction and Projects practice with the recruitment of construction litigator David Ulbrick who has joined the firm’s Perth office as Special Counsel, effective 30 November 2015.

David specialises in construction, particularly in the resources sector, and is experienced in advising on all aspects of project delivery and disputes work (supporting negotiation, mediation, expert determination, security of payment legislation applications, arbitration and litigation).

David has qualifications in civil engineering and has worked on a number of construction sites (including the award winning Adelaide Desalination Project) as well as with a boutique marine engineering firm. As a consequence of that experience he is able to quickly understand technical and commercial issues that confront major construction projects during the delivery phase and assist project teams to create successful outcomes for all manner of projects.

David lectures in the successful Construction Law Masters programme at the University of Melbourne, is widely published and has had success in a number of industry awards, including being awarded the Tom Yuncken Young Construction Lawyer Award (Victoria) 2010-11 and second place in the Brooking Essay Prize 2010.
