Macpherson Kelley is pleased to announce the appointment of Stephen Pallavicini as Special Counsel for the Property and Construction team in Sydney and Michael Sheehan as Special Counsel for the Construction, Infrastructure and Energy team in Brisbane.

Both appointments bolster the firm’s legal talent, servicing construction and property sectors that have undergone significant and rapid growth.

National Managing Principal Lawyer Grant Guenther welcomes Stephen and Michael’s extensive industry expertise in their respective fields.

“The property and construction industries have skyrocketed in the past couple of years and we need to make strategic decisions that support our clients’ business and industry demand,” Grant said.

“Stephen and Michael bring an incredible wealth of knowledge, so clients can be assured that their commercial needs are met with the same bold and considered advice they expect from Macpherson Kelley.”

Stephen is a revered Commercial Property lawyer with experience both in private practice and as a Senior Legal Counsel in-house in two ASX 200 listed companies. He has acted for a number of notable brands such as Coles, David Jones, Zara, H&M, and in-house for Woolworths and Stockland for a collective 18 years.

Listed previously as one of Australia’s leading In-House Property and Real Estate Lawyers in Doyles Guide, Stephen is also an Accredited Specialist in Property Law.

Stephen joins Macpherson Kelley from Eakin McCaffery Cox where he was a Partner.

Michael has acted on a wide range of legal issues affecting construction, engineering and infrastructure, having previously worked as Senior Legal Counsel with Alstom (formerly Bombardier) and as a Senior Associate at Mills Oakley.

Michael has acted for clients in relation to a number of significant infrastructure projects in Queensland including the Queensland Children’s Hospital, Gold Coast Light Rail, UQ Oral Health Project and Coal Seam Gas infrastructure.
