Minter Ellison expands construction practice with key hire
Minter Ellison has welcomed construction expert Henry Sherman as a senior consultant in its Hong Kong office.
He joins from CMS Cameron McKenna where he was partner in London and Hong Kong for more than 25 years. During his time there, he worked closely with Minter Ellison on several disputes, particularly involving issues from the transport structure network for Hong Kong Chek Lap Kok airport.
In the UK he has represented clients under the rules of the International Chamber of Commerce and the United Nations Commission on International Trade Law.
Sherman admits that he “jumped” at the chance to join Minter Ellison. “While I've acted on many large and complex arbitration disputes in Europe, the Middle East, Africa and other parts of Asia, my work with Minters has been among the high points of my career,” he adds.
Working closely with Sherman is Steven Yip, head of the firm’s Asian construction, engineering and infrastructure practice. Yip says: “Henry has 35 years of working in Europe, Asia and internationally. He further enhances our specialist construction capabilities in Greater China, particularly in the key areas of dispute resolution, arbitration and ADR.”
Sherman is listed in The International Who’s Who of Construction Lawyers.
