Jim Delkousis

CEO and Founder

Jim Delkousis’ career in the law is one of expertise, achievement and leadership. In 17 years of partnership at leading law firms– first Mallesons Stephen Jaques (now KWM) and until recently, DLA Piper – he has lived the importance of the client relationship and problem solving.

In addition to a career in major project dispute resolution, Jim held a number of leadership positions. In 2007 he was recruited by DLA Piper to establish their disputes practice in the Middle East, where he spent the next six years building that practice from a standing start to a team of 35 dispute lawyers throughout the Middle East. Between 2011 and 2013 he was managing partner of DLA Piper’s Dubai office.  He then relocated to Australia to become the Co-Global Head of the firm's Infrastructure, Construction and Transport sector.
