Lex project manages the delivery of legal services in all facets of his practice, a key element in ensuring successful outcomes.

Lex has acted for state and local government and corporate clients on significant construction and infrastructure projects across a variety of industries.

The “standard” approach to projects needs to be challenged, particularly where that will lead to less than optimal outcomes.

Lex is experienced in all forms of dispute resolution. In addition to traditional forms (such as litigation, arbitration, expert adjudication), he has utilised a variety of alternative dispute resolution processes (eg. Dispute Resolution Board) to deliver outstanding outcomes for clients. He has been at the forefront of the security of payment (BCIPA) process acting for clients to create new authorities as part of delivering successful outcomes.

Lex was Queensland Chapter Chairman of the Institute of Arbitrators (Queensland Chapter) and served as a member of the Queensland Chapter Committee for five years. He is also well-known through his involvement, providing probity services, in a large number of invitation processes including the Gateway Upgrade Project, the Eleanor Schonell (formerly Green Bridge) Bridge Project, Ipswich Motorway Norther Option Investigation, Hale Street Link Project Market Sounding and Brisbane Water’s Sewerage Treatment Plant Upgrades.
