Top commercial firm lures partner from global giant
One of Australia’s largest commercial firms has gained a partner from one of America’s top BigLaw shops.

Colin Biggers & Paisley has appointed Greg Begaud as partner in its construction and engineering team. Begaud came from Jones Day, where he spent more than four years as partner. He also previously worked at Allens and as a civil engineer.

Begaud has 30 years’ experience in the construction, infrastructure, and property sectors. His expertise is in the areas of alternative dispute resolution; commercial litigation; construction including project procurement, risk management, and contract administration; energy and resources; and infrastructure, major projects, and public-private partnerships.

He regularly advises government and private clients from a myriad of industries, which includes energy and resources, transport, defence, public infrastructure, IT and property development. Begaud is admitted to practice in the Supreme Court of New South Wales and the High Court of Australia.

His appointment follows the firm’s addition of property partner, Duane Keighran, who also came from Jones Day. The firm also recently appointed Lisa Lane as a partner in its property and development team, and Rachel Pie, who came from Clayton Utz, as a special counsel in its construction practice.
