Quality and consistency through collaboration

Sparke Helmore Lawyers is pleased to announce Sheldon Garcia has joined our Projects & Government Commercial team as a partner.

Sheldon has been a litigator for 20 years and for the past 17 years has specialised in construction dispute resolution, security of payment and contract drafting and review. He advises a broad range of clients beyond the traditional construction industry companies. He also has a niche practice in residential developments and strata in NSW, NSW Government operations (including construction, goods, services and ICT procurements) and advising and managing contract claims on live projects.

Sheldon is known for his fact driven approach and high technical skillset. His many years of experience working with local and state government and large multi-national organisations across infrastructure, manufacturing, commercial and residential projects means that he understands the technical and commercial aspects of construction work and ‘speaks the same language’ as his clients.

Paul Tobin, National Practice Group Leader for Projects & Government Commercial said, “We are excited to welcome Sheldon onboard. Sheldon’s expertise and know-how will allow us to expand the services we provide to our clients and support the continued growth of our national practice.”

“I am pleased to enter the next phase of my career with Sparke Helmore. This opportunity allows me to build on my strong relationships in the industry, adding greater depth to the firm’s highly regarded Projects & Government Commercial team”, said Sheldon.

Sheldon is based in our Sydney office.
