In the field of construction law, Victoria frequently assists building owners (including homeowners), builders and other contractors. Victoria provides legal advice and advocacy in the specialist area of disputes arising from building projects, including weather tightness problems. She also provides legal guidance in respect of the preparation and negotiation of building contracts.
Construction law is a specialised area of law largely due to the complexities associated with the technical nature of contract documents, building standards and legal requirements. Victoria has a close working knowledge of the relevant legislation, applicable industry standards, and standard contract documents.
Victoria is available to accept appointment as an adjudicator under the Construction Contracts Act 2002, arbitrator or mediator in respect of construction disputes.
