The client was a privately owned Australian company which owned transport infrastructure in Sydney.

Piper Alderman acted for the client in relation to a dispute concerning the construction and installation of the revenue collection system and the operational control system of the infrastructure.

The contractual responsibilities of the relevant parties under a turnkey contract and various sub contracts were in issue, as was the adequacy of each of these sub systems. The matter involved the detailed consideration of the contracts, system specifications and performance specifications and an analysis of whether these sub systems complied with those requirements.

Piper Alderman assisted in the successful resolution of the dispute in a multi-party arbitration before a former Federal Court judge.
