National law firm Holding Redlich has further strengthened its construction, infrastructure and major projects practice with the appointment of Christine Lithgow as partner in Sydney. The appointment of Christine follows three additional partner appointments in Brisbane and Melbourne over the last 12 months, completing the planned expansion of the firm’s construction and infrastructure practice.
Christine Lithgow is an experienced senior executive, lawyer and people leader, with an extensive legal career in the private and public sector. Over the last decade, Christine served as Group General Counsel for Transport for NSW and General Counsel for Roads and Maritime Services respectively, where she led a large group of lawyers and advised on major transport and infrastructure projects in NSW.
Holding Redlich’s National Managing Partner, Ian Robertson AO, said Ms Lithgow’s extensive experience in government major projects significantly bolsters the firm’s capabilities within the sector.
“We are delighted to welcome Christine onboard and are proud to have attracted a senior leader with her passion, expertise and a strong track record leading the delivery of major government construction and infrastructure projects,” Mr Robertson said.
“Christine’s appointment is a significant milestone for our construction, infrastructure and major projects practice nationally, marking the completion of this expansion phase and positioning the firm’s offering as a national leader in the market.”
Christine Lithgow said she is excited to lead the delivery of major infrastructure projects and continue to build Holding Redlich’s practice in New South Wales, where the state government recently announced a record $108.5 billion infrastructure commitment over four years, aiming to drive economic growth and boost productivity.
“It’s an exciting time nationally for major infrastructure projects. I’m delighted to be joining Holding Redlich’s highly capable team of legal advisors in Sydney, building our construction, infrastructure and major projects practice, and working closely with clients to deliver successful project outcomes.”
Christine’s appointment brings Holding Redlich’s national partnership to 73 partners across its Cairns, Brisbane, Sydney, Canberra and Melbourne offices.
