Posted by Ben Robertson | 23 November 2020 | Civil Contractors and Construction

Nexus Law Group is excited to announce the appointment of Ben Robertson as Partner in charge of the Sydney office and National Practice Director of Construction and Infrastructure team.

Ben formerly headed the construction practice at Madison Marcus and joins Nexus with over two decades of private practice and in-house legal experience with one of the largest project homes builders in Australia.  During his career, Ben has represented all stakeholders in the construction industry including Builders, Developers, large civil contractors and specialist trades. Ben is a published author on construction law and his combined experience provides him with unique insight and skills to achieve consistently excellent results for his clients. Ben acts for clients in both ‘front-end’ contract advisory and contested disputes before the Courts.  Like the rest of the construction team at Nexus, he is in an expert in Building Industry Security of Payment legislation and conducts complex Adjudications in each state.

“Construction has always at the core of our commercial practice at Nexus,” said Nexus Law Group Managing Director Marcus McCarthy. “We are excited to have Ben lead our already strong Construction practice and I am looking forward to working with him to take our unique business model into the future.  Nexus is already one of most well established NewLaw firms in Australia and as part of the leadership team, Ben will have a huge impact on where we take the business in the future”.

“Nexus has a long and proven history within the construction and infrastructure sector and I am excited to join the team. I look forward to helping clients navigate the opportunities and challenges available in the new year.” said Ben Robertson. “  I am particularly excited to work in a business with such an innovative business model – Nexus has a unique structure that is highly beneficial for lawyers and I am excited about the prospect of working with other specialist lawyers who are also looking for something more from their legal career.

Commenting on the new year ahead, Ben said “2021 will see an impressive increase of activity within Australia’s construction and infrastructure sector, as it will be driven by COVID-19 Budget stimulus packages and a reinitiating of work put on hold due to the pandemic. Now more than ever clients need high quality solutions-focused legal advice. I believe Nexus is well placed to deliver that advice across a range of practice areas. We look forward to continuing to provide clients with what they need to make a real difference to their business.”
