Piper Alderman continues to expand its project, infrastructure, and construction expertise with the addition of former Maddocks special counsel Ben McLeod as a partner in Melbourne.

McLeod has experience providing strategic advice on all stages of project lifecycle − from procurement and contract administration to dispute resolution and avoidance. He specialises particularly in strategic management and resolution of complex disputes, having acted for principals, contractors, and consultants on major infrastructure projects in Australia and internationally.

“Our national projects, infrastructure and construction team continues to go from strength to strength,” Piper Alderman managing partner Tony Britten-Jones said. “We are very pleased to be welcoming Ben as part of the national team in our Melbourne office. His experience in all stages of a project lifecycle is a welcome addition to our team.”

Throughout his career, McLeod has worked closely with numerous clients across a range of industries, including transport, utilities, property development, and renewable and non-renewable power. He also worked at Herbert Geer and Russell Kennedy.

“Piper Alderman has built a strong reputation in the construction and infrastructure space,” McLeod said. “With a strong pipeline of work across the renewable energy, resources and infrastructure sectors, I’m thrilled to be joining the team to further drive its growth.”
