Queensland construction team receives recognition for strong performance

29 February 2016


Thomson Geer has been recognised as one of the leading construction firms in Queensland in the most recent Doyle’s Guide.  Partner, Andrew Kelly, was ranked as “pre-eminent” amongst Queensland construction lawyers (ranking Andrew in the top 4 construction lawyers in Queensland), with Thomson Geer recognised as a leading firm with respect to construction dispute work, and a recommended firm in relation to front-end transactional work.  Doyle’s Guide is an independent, research-based guide to the top lawyers and law firms in Australia.  We have provided links to the full lists below.

Andrew believes that this recognition is “reward for a strong year, during which our construction team was retained to act in significant back-end disputes including international arbitrations, Supreme Court proceedings, and adjudications, as well as to provide front-end advice on high value construction and infrastructure projects”.

While the prevalence of commercial projects across Brisbane is evident from the multitude of cranes currently dotting the skyline, and the number of security of payment adjudications remains strong, the recent slowdown of resource related work (as major projects go from construction to production phases) will be felt over the coming 12 to 18 months.  In this environment, clients increasingly look for value in the marketplace with firms required to provide high service at a lower price to compete.

When compared against its peers, our construction team consistently delivers value to its clients by providing high levels of experience and specialist knowledge at significantly lower hourly rates.  In addition, we offer flexible fee arrangements such as set fee adjudications to provide clients with budgeting certainty.  This, coupled with our position as one of the top construction firms in Queensland, means we are confident of consistently delivering our clients the best result for the best price.
