Clayton Utz snags construction and infrastructure expert

Clayton Utz has strengthened its construction and major projects practice with the arrival of a new partner.

Graham Read has joined the firm, adding extensive experience in construction and infrastructure to the national team. He previously served at Norton Rose Fulbright (NRF), which he joined as part of NRF’s merger with Henry Davis York in December. He was also previously a partner at Ashurst and a general counsel with the New South Wales (NSW) state government.

“Graham has impressive experience in managing complex projects both domestically and internationally, including leading negotiations on behalf of government on major cross-border deals and major infrastructure projects nationally,” said Sergio Capelli, who heads the Clayton Utz construction and major projects group.

Read’s practice services both public- and private-sector clients. He has a particularly strong track record advising NSW and Commonwealth government clients, Clayton Utz said.

“As well as his legal and commercial experience, Graham is respected a strong mentor who builds strong, long-term client relationships and has a highly collaborative approach to his work. We are confident that Graham will make a valuable contribution and help us continue to provide our clients with an exceptional service,” Capelli said.
