New special counsel joins from a global firm

HopgoodGanim builds stronger construction practice

HopgoodGanim Lawyers has welcomed a senior lawyer to its construction practice in Brisbane.

The firm has appointed Blake Frost as special counsel, gaining a lawyer with extensive experience in the resources, energy, projects, real estate, and government sectors. He moved from Norton Rose Fulbright, where he was a senior associate. Frost was also previously with Clayton Utz.

He has worked in a wide range of contentious matters that include litigations, mediations, adjudications, and arbitrations. He has also advised clients on general risk considerations of large-scale projects, as well as both contentious and non-contentious issues of current projects.

Frost has a strong understanding of procurement models and project documentation, the firm said. He also has extensive experience in ICC arbitration, expert determination, Supreme Court litigation, and security of payment adjudication.

“Blake’s reputation is outstanding,” partner Jonathan Fulcher said. “His energy and drive to deliver a holistic construction service to the firm’s clients is first-class.”
