Gadens has bolstered its property, construction and planning group with the appointment of Michael Bampton as partner in Sydney.
Bampton moved from legacy Henry Davis York (HDY), where he led the construction practice. His transfer follows the appointments of Kathy Merrick, Robert Tracy, and Ted Nixey in Sydney from HDY. The firm also recently hired partners Brett Feltham from DLA Piper, James Roland from TurksLegal, and Dermott Lynch from his own firm in London.
Bampton is a well-regarded and highly-respected practitioner in the construction and infrastructure industry, said Grant Hayward-Scott, Gadens chief executive. The new partner is also recognised for his expertise in dispute resolution, he said.
Bampton has extensive experience in the preparation and negotiation of documentation, contract administration, contract dispute processes and alternative dispute resolution. His practice covers a wide range of construction projects, from complicated top-end projects and significant PPPs to luxury residential developments, the firm said.
