Celebrating International Women’s Day in Tasmania with HIA

Amanda Zucker

Senior Associate

Simmons Wolfhagen has been recognised as an Employer of Choice by the Tasmanian Government since 2011 for demonstrating contemporary workplace practices and outstanding support for their staff, and providing opportunities for employees to build an effective work-life balance.

So it should come as no surprise that we boast a strong cohort of women solicitors providing exemplary legal services to the property, building and construction industry.

To celebrate this fact our team recently attended the “HIA Building Women’s Breakfast” hosted in Launceston to meet with other successful women within the industry and hear from one of Australia’s leading businesswomen, philanthropist, women’s football pioneer and 2018 Victorian of the year – Dr Susan Alberti AC.

Kristi Foale, Director, Simmons Wolfhagen, reflected on the event stating “The simply amazing guest speaker Dr Susan Alberti AC, who amongst many fascinating stories told of her time in the construction industry. We took inspiration from a life well lived and walked away with a greater respect for the growth of female participation in various roles within the building industry.

Post the event we challenged our property, building and construction team of legal specialist to list the most common issues that cross their desks. The list includes:

  1. Limitation Periods and Claims Under the SOP Act
  2. Procedure Issues
  3. Insurance Issues
  4. Termination Issues
  5. Defective Work Issues
  6. Variation Issues
  7. Payment Issues
  8. Delay Issues
  9. Managing Costs and Margins
  10. Industry Reforms

If any of these issues ring true for your business and you are looking for a female property lawyer in Hobart or Launceston with significant experience in property, building and construction law, whether it be commercial or residential, contact our expert team of solicitors today.

Or call 03 6226 1200 (Hobart Office) or 03 6338 2390 (Launceston Office)
