National law firm Holding Redlich is pleased to announce the appointment of John Wei as a Brisbane-based partner in the Property & Projects group.

John is a senior property lawyer who specialises in advising Chinese clients on international investments, particularly in real estate and renewable energy. 

He has experience advising on matters regarding commercial acquisitions and disposals, real estate developments, leasing, renewable energy, mining and infrastructure.

John’s appointment further strengthens Holding Redlich’s Property & Projects team in Brisbane and nationally.

John said he is delighted to join Holding Redlich at an important time for the property market.

“Chinese investment in Australian real estate is still very strong despite a downturn in the residential market in Sydney and Melbourne,” he said.

“There has also been strong interest from China in renewable energy investments for the last 12 months. I predict that the number of deals emanating from China in renewable energy and real estate is likely to increase in 2019.”

National Managing Partner Ian Robertson welcomed John, saying his expertise will further strengthen the firm’s China practice.

“John has advised a number of large Chinese property groups with substantial investments in Australia and his appointment further strengthens our property team in Brisbane and nationally,” Ian said. 

“He will also work closely with the Head of our China legal practice, Carl Hinze, to further develop our practice acting for Chinese firms investing in Australia and Australian companies with legal issues in China.”

John’s experience includes:

  • advising on a joint-venture multi-staged development in Sydney’s inner-west valued at $1.6 billion
  • advising an international property development company on their four developments in Sydney worth $1.5 billion
  • advising a major Chinese property developer on its master planned acquisitions in NSW for $575 million.
