Kate Gorman is a Senior Lawyer in the Construction & Infrastructure Team at Moores

Kate’s expertise is in private development and major infrastructure projects assisting clients with preparation of commercial and construction transaction documents including negotiating building contracts, supply agreements, maintenance contracts and consultancy agreements.

Kate has over 18 years of experience in the construction industry, originally working as a project manager across commercial, residential and civil sectors both on the contractor and client side. Kate is able to draw on this experience to provide proactive and practical solutions to complex legal issues faced by clients.

Kate loves the beach, so much so, she moved to the Surf Coast. You will find her there with her dog and husband, rain, hail or shine. She loves getting in the ocean for a swim or surf (small waves only) all year round.
