Stephen WebbStephen Webb, DLA Piper

Internationally-renowned Stephen Webb is the type of projects lawyer that top tier clients with an interest in the Asia-Pacific region trust on deals that are a ‘first’ of their kind. Though now based in Brisbane, Webb has built a reputation as a true cross-border specialist, working in jurisdictions across the globe that include Abu Dhabi and Hong Kong, and has brought his experience home to Australia to advise clients across Asia. His work for public sector clients in the last 12 months includes advising the government of East Timor in relation to a significant oil and gas project in the Timor Sea, and he is also advising the Mongolian government on its first IPP project, CHP5. Webb also demonstrated cross-border expertise for private sector clients such as Xstrata, Leighton and Equis/Soleq.
