Clyde & Co has expanded its global projects and construction offering with the appointment of Phillip Coady as a partner in its Sydney office.

Coady is a highly regarded lawyer with over two decades of experience in construction, engineering and infrastructure law. His practice includes advising clients on the complete lifecycle of construction projects and acting in a wide range of large-scale project disputes, arbitrations, expert determinations, adjudications, mediations and facilitated negotiations.

Furthermore, he has worked for top-tier legal practices in Australia and the UK as a qualified solicitor in England and Wales. He served as an in-house senior legal counsel for Lendlease Engineering, one of Australia’s largest development and construction corporations.

For the past four years, Coady has been recognised as a leading construction lawyer by the Doyle’s Guide. Prior to joining Clyde & Co, he was a partner at Vincent Young for more than five years.

According to the firm, the appointment will further boost the firm’s capacity to advise global contractors on complex and contentious construction sector issues.

“This hire further enhances our existing strengths globally, acting for major international contractors in critical and complex infrastructure projects, including representing clients in multi-jurisdictional disputes in the construction industry,” said partner John Morris, who heads the global projects and construction group at Clyde & Co.

Partner and APAC board member Beth Cubitt added that Coady’s arrival bolsters the firm’s offering across Asia Pacific and ensures that it is best placed to meet the increasing demand of construction law expertise in the region.

“I am absolutely thrilled to be joining Clyde & Co and leveraging the firm’s large international practice to assist national and global contractors with their projects and dispute resolution matters in Australia and beyond,” Coady said.
