Philip van Rensburg has joined Hogan Lovells as a partner in the construction department and litigation team in Johannesburg. Joining with him is senior associate Waseeqah Makadam.
Philip focuses on litigation and projects primarily within the construction, engineering and mining industries, but also advises clients in the energy and chemical sectors. His dispute resolution work includes civil litigation, arbitration under local and international rules (ICC), and adjudication (DAB) proceedings in local and international disputes.
Philip advises contractors, engineers and plant owners in both contentious and non-contentious matters on all aspects arising from FIDIC, GCC, JBCC and NEC3 contracts. He has extensive experience in drafting EPC and EPCM contracts in the construction, energy, infrastructure, mining and telecommunications industries, as well as identifying, evaluating, formulating and defending claims in relation to construction and engineering projects.
Michael Davison, global head of disputes, said:
“Philip’s extensive experience will be a tremendous asset to our construction team, which counts some of the world's largest engineering and contracting companies among its clients.”
Philip van Rensburg said:
“The fully-integrated teams at Hogan Lovells provide clients with the opportunity to access industry knowledge and sector expertise with impressive geographic reach.
"I look forward to working with my new colleagues at Hogan Lovells."
Previously Philip was a director at Baker McKenzie, and prior to that he was with Fasken Martineau.
