Did you know... our construction team is ranked with the best internationally?
The breadth and depth of the Clayton Utz Construction and Major Projects group continue to expand.
Clayton Utz's Projects team has cemented its position as a world-leading practice after being ranked among the world's leading construction law practices in the International Who's Who of Construction Lawyers and topping the H1 2011 global Infrastructure Journal Legal Advisers (mandate won) League Table. Clayton Utz was the only Australian law firm included amongst the top ranked international firms.
In addition, the Online Global Intelligence Service Infrastructure Journal ranked Clayton Utz first in the Asia-Pacific Region and first globally for infrastructure mandates awarded. During the first half of 2011 Clayton Utz advised on transactions totalling US$35.9 billion, representing an Asia-Pacific market-share of 76.5 percent.
One of the unique features of Clayton Utz's Construction and Major Projects team is the calibre of the expertise that is available locally. Doug Jones, head of the Construction and Major Projects Group, is routinely recognised as being a worldwide leader in his field by publications such as the IFLR1000, Who's Who Legal and Chambers Global.
Based in Clayton Utz's Sydney office, Doug Jones' international presence and experience are unmatched in the Australian market, and the local availability of that expertise gives Clayton Utz an unparalleled competitive edge. No other Australian firm has a world leading construction lawyer resident in Australia.
But our construction team is far from a one-man band. In fact, we have many of Australia's best construction lawyers. Of the 48 construction lawyers included in last years list of "Best Lawyers", 12 were from Clayton Utz – twice as many as any other firm.
The breadth and depth of the Clayton Utz Construction and Major Projects group continue to expand, ensuring that it is able to provide a world-class offering to its clients, both locally and internationally. It is on the basis of this experience and our proactive client service that Clayton Utz's Construction and Major Projects lawyers continue to be recognised internationally as leaders in their profession.
