Joshua accepts briefs in all areas of commercial law, with a particular interest in building and construction matters. Joshua is also experienced in matters relating to the intersection of commercial law and the built environment, including domestic and international arbitration, insurance, insolvency, planning and environment, and competition and consumer law.
Before joining the Bar, Joshua worked as a solicitor at MolinoCahill, a specialist law firm providing advice to clients involved in the construction, infrastructure, technology, defence, and energy and resource sectors. As a solicitor, Joshua worked on a variety of matters, ranging from smaller disputes involving subcontractors and designers ($ million +) through to significant claims on large infrastructure projects ($ billions). His practice included advising clients on complex construction and engineering disputes, including in relation to delay and disruption, and defects, as well as the administration of major projects.
Joshua has been published in peer-reviewed legal journals, including in relation to the validity of contractual limits on liability, the availability of a quantum meruit in light of recent developments in the law, and the scope of third-party claims in arbitration. His contributions to the field have been recognised in consecutive years (2020 and 2021) through the Brooking Prize – an annual competition held by the Society of Construction Law Australia for the best essay submitted in the field of construction law.
Joshua is reading with Gabi Crafti. His senior mentor is Rob Craig QC.
