Megan is a partner in our national construction group and is based in the Melbourne office. She has a Bachelor of Laws (Hons)/Bachelor of Science from Monash University and was admitted to practice in 2003.

Megan’s front end expertise includes advising on, drafting and negotiating contracts for developers, head contractors and major suppliers.  The nature of such contracts includes design and construct, construct only, supply, consultant agreements (and novation agreements for consultants where appropriate), subcontracts and tripartite agreements. 

In addition to her drafting and negotiating experience, Megan has dispute experience across the spectrum of construction-based problems including contractual entitlements, recourse to bank guarantees, termination (both pursuant to contract and at common law), security of payment claims and enforcement of judgments and has been involved in disputes across all jurisdictions, ranging from Tribunals to the High Court of Australia, together with expert determinations, adjudications and arbitrations.

As a result of the breadth of Megan’s experience, Megan has a good understanding of the risks associated with undertaking medium and large projects and of the market conditions which impact upon the risk allocations that can be achieved in documenting construction projects.

Megan is currently listed in the 2020 ‘Best Lawyers in Australia’ for Construction/ Infrastructure law.
