National law firm Holding Redlich is pleased to announce the appointment of David Harley as a Partner in the firm’s Queensland practice.
Mr Harley specialises in the development and operation of projects in the energy, resources, transport and infrastructure sectors for owners and contractors. He has major project experience internationally and in-house, having undertaken long-term secondments in the energy, mining and transport sectors.
Holding Redlich Queensland Managing Partner, Paul Venus, said Mr Harley’s appointment comes at a time of significant growth for the firm and the state of Queensland.
“Construction, Infrastructure & Projects is an important area of growth for our firm, particularly in light of the recent Queensland Budget which saw $14.8 billion committed to driving the largest infrastructure program in over a decade,” Mr Venus said.
“David has worked on some of Queensland’s largest infrastructure deals, and will add valuable expertise and experience to our practice.”
Mr Harley said he had been impressed by Holding Redlich’s growth in the Queensland market, and the firm’s track record of advising on significant construction and infrastructure projects.
“It’s clear that Holding Redlich has the right people, right expertise and right understanding of the Queensland market to capitalise on the massive growth opportunities ahead,” Mr Harley said.
“Building Queensland’s infrastructure is a key priority for the Government, and that will require legal practitioners who understand clients’ objectives within the broader commercial and political context.”
Mr Harley joins Holding Redlich from an international firm where he was a Partner for 12 years. He has a Bachelor of Laws (Hons) and Bachelor of Arts from the University of Queensland, and a Graduate Diploma in Applied Finance and Investment from the Financial Securities Institute of Australasia.
