Doug Johnson's practice focuses on complex commercial disputes and international arbitration. He has a broad range of experience in major contractual disputes, urgent injunctions, statutory claims, claims on security interests, and insurance coverage issues.

A significant part of Doug's practice has involved disputes concerning construction and engineering projects. He regularly advises contractors and asset owners on the full gamut of construction-related issues, including matters involving delays, variations, completion certification, liquidated damages, rapid adjudications, defects, quantification of loss, and extra-contractual claims (such as waiver, estoppel, or misleading and deceptive conduct). He also assists clients with alternative dispute resolution processes such as mediations, expert determinations, and informal negotiations.

Doug has a particular interest in advocacy work and has appeared as counsel in the Federal Court of Australia and all Western Australian courts.

Examples of Doug's recent representations include: acting for a number of contractors involved in the design and construction of one of the world's largest liquefied natural gas (LNG) facilities, successfully obtaining urgent injunctive relief restraining a principal from calling on a number of performance bonds, advising an Australian bank on compliance with anti-money laundering and counter terrorism laws, and assisting one of the world's largest toll road operators to defend a substantial adjudication application.
