Tom is a lawyer who provides strategic advice to contractors on delay, variation, payment, security, defects and other construction-related issues on transport infrastructure and renewable energy projects throughout Australia. Tom regularly advises clients in adjudication, arbitration and court.
Tom provides first-class advice and has managed for me numerous high-value infrastructure disputes (including adjudications, court proceedings and arbitrations), with clear and well-communicated strategies that enabled excellent outcomes to be achieved. Tom’s greatest quality is simply his ability to get the job done, drawing on his knowledge of construction disputes and, in particular, his second-to-none knowledge of security of payment law.

They came up with solutions that we had not thought of, and they were proactive on many things. I thought that Tom Heading was a very keen process lawyer, but also good strategy-wise. He knew how to approach a client, not just strictly from a legal perspective; to have a strategy to annoy the opponent without enraging them.
