Avendra Singh is a partner in the firm’s Construction & Engineering Practice. He is also a member of our disputes resolution team, which is ranked in tier 3 (“prompt [and] commercial”) in the latest edition of The Legal 500 Asia Pacific, despite its short five-year presence in Sydney.
Avendra has a multijurisdictional, contentious and non-contentious practice that has covered urban renewal, residential and commercial property, public utilities (electricity, water and sewerage), public infrastructure (airports, rail, roads, bridges, jetties and sports stadiums) representing major developers, public and private owners, design consultants, project managers, contractors and subcontractors.
Avendra “…come[s] in for praise…” in The Legal 500 Asia Pacific 2018, was recommended by The Legal 500 Asia Pacific 2014, and was named by Doyle’s Guide 2015 as one of the leading construction lawyers in NSW and described as someone who "knows his stuff".
Avendra speaks regularly on new developments and issues affecting the projects and construction sector. Most recently, he was invited by ADB to present a paper in February 2018 on the issues governing the conduct of arbitrations under the UNCITRAL Model Law in the Asia Pacific region.
