Jennifer Harris

I am a Special Counsel in the Sydney Real Estate team. Acting regularly for the public sector, I have developed a deep knowledge of probity, procurement and major development transactions. I give strategic advice on compliance with legislation, guidelines, local government policy and management of stakeholder issues. I have acted on some very significant urban renewal projects and local government procurement processes. Knowing the decisions made on these deals now will shape the way people live and work in their communities in the future really motivates me. I am a transactional lawyer, so I'm very aware that relationships and collaboration are vital to my practice, and also to the building of teams and the development of people to work in our business. I am a very committed mentor, and the proud winner of Mentor of the year at the 2016 Women in Law Awards.
