Dean Balassis is frequently called on directly by clients in the construction sector to act in high-value transactions and disputes, and to advise on high-risk project issues. Lander & Rogers (L&R) has acted on several complicated transactions and contentious matters over the past 12 months and Balassis has taken the lead role on several cases. A couple of these include preparing, negotiating and documenting a bespoke EPC contract for the developer of a series of solar power developments (reported in the AFR and other publications); and preparing a suite of precedent contracts for a new builder entering the commercial construction market. In addition to this work, Balassis continues to contribute to L&R in a broader context. He was awarded the L&R Innovation Award for leading the implementation of an artificial intelligence due diligence platform, which is now utilised across the firm's practices in the property, corporate and employment divisions.
