nbn picks up two wins at the 2015 Australasian Law Awards

nbn’s Chief Legal Counsel, Justin Forsell, has been named Australian In House Lawyer of the Year.

The announcement was made at the 2015 Australasian Law Awards on Thursday 21 May in Sydney.

It was one of two major awards we picked up on the night, also winning the Property, Infrastructure and Projects Deal of the Year for the renegotiation of the agreement with Telstra for the rollout of the nbn™ network. The result is particularly impressive given nbn has now won this award twice: once for the original deal and now for the renegotiation.

Justin acknowledged the dedication of the entire nbn Legal Group.

“These awards are testament to the fantastic work the Legal Group does in supporting the company to achieve its goals,” he said.

nbn is a challenging but dynamic place to work and I am very privileged to be a part of a high performing team." 

"The opportunities to be involved in a cutting edge, nation-building enterprise encourage the team to do their best every day.”

We have also recently featured in LinkedIn’s 2015 InDemand Employer Rankings, a list of the 30 most sought-after employers in Australia.

Coming in at 22nd in the rankings, nbn was the only employer in the network and telecommunication sector to make the list, and was the youngest company having started only five and a half years ago.
