Construction is an integral cog in the machine of Australian society. Even against the backdrop of extraordinary challenges during the age of COVID-19, work as a construction lawyer remains exciting and “intellectually stimulating”, say two BigLaw partners.

On this episode of The Lawyers Weekly Show, host Jerome Doraisamy is joined by Baker McKenzie partners Matt Coleman and Joshua Saunders to discuss the state of affairs in the construction industry and the materials shortages that have been faced in the age of COVID-19, how these and related issues have impacted upon the work of lawyers in this space and how such challenges make for such exciting work.

Mr Coleman and Mr Saunders delve into why work as a construction lawyer is so “intellectually stimulating”, whether ongoing geopolitical concerns will exacerbate challenges faced here in Australia, trends and opportunities on the horizon for lawyers in this space, whether the work of construction lawyers will look different to pre-pandemic times and what excites these partners about their work moving forward.
