Chapman Tripp is pleased to announce that construction law expert Hamish Bolland joined the firm’s Construction & Major Projects team this week. He is a senior associate based in Auckland.

Hamish has worked on major construction projects, both within New Zealand and around the world, in a variety of sectors including infrastructure, mining, energy, oil and gas, commercial and residential. He joins Chapman Tripp from Allen & Overy’s Projects team in Dubai, where he spent six years acting for sponsors and project companies undertaking major projects in the Gulf region and financial institutions lending to those projects.

Hamish’s recent experience includes:

• acting for the project company procuring a US$6-7b oil refinery in Duqm, Sultanate of Oman

• acting for the commercial lenders and ECAs to a USD4-5b phosphate mine and downstream petrochemical complex in northern Saudi Arabia

Chapman Tripp’s head of Construction & Major Projects, Brian Clayton says:

“Hamish brings a wealth of international experience to our team. His familiarity with PPPs and other forms of project procurement will be invaluable to our clients.

“Chapman Tripp’s multi-practice Construction & Major Projects team provides international best practice, techniques and structures to our clients across the entire project lifecycle. We are delighted to welcome Hamish to the team.”

Hamish says the timing was perfect to return to New Zealand and join such a strong construction practice.

“It’s an exciting time to be involved in this industry. With New Zealand on the brink of its largest construction boom in 40 years, I’m looking forward to applying the skills I’ve gained internationally to the variety of projects I’ll be working on here.”
