Squire Patton Boggs adds construction specialist to dispute resolution team
Global law firm Squire Patton Boggs has hired a new construction specialist as it seeks to expand its international dispute resolution team in Sydney.

The firm announced on Wednesday it has brought in David Starkoff, who will work with partners Cris Cureton, Brendan Reilly, and Avendra Singh on a number of large-scale construction disputes and arbitrations – including the US$34bn Ichthys LNG oil and gas project off the shores of Western Australia.

Starkoff is a veteran lawyer who specializes in construction, infrastructure, and projects disputes. His practice also includes commercial litigation, government enforcement litigation and competition and regulatory advice in the electricity sector.

“David’s reputation for technical excellence together with his focus on construction and infrastructure are a good fit for us and for our clients. His ability to manage complex litigation is an important skill in a busy practice such as ours,” Cureton said.

Starkoff began his legal career at Corrs Chambers Westgarth in Brisbane before moving to its Sydney office in 2012. He was appointed Special Counsel in 2015. The firm said his recent experience has been in large disputes, particularly international and domestic construction arbitrations and ASIC litigation.
