My experience in both project work and disputes helps me to understand both sides of the coin and provide more rounded commercial advice to clients.
I specialise in Construction and Engineering law, advising developers, funders, construction professionals and Tier 1 and 2 contractors. My experience in both project work and disputes helps me to anticipate problems and assist clients in managing risk.
My clients value my efficient response times and practical, commercial advice when drafting and negotiating. I balance a friendly approach with robustly protecting my clients’ interests. Although my role is as a legal advisor, I always have my clients’ commercial drivers in mind. I utilise my experience of acting for different parties in transactions to help clients better understand the other parties’ positions, which reduces negotiation time and cost.
I have worked on a wide variety of projects but have particular sector expertise in healthcare (particularly GP super-surgery projects), logistics and warehousing, leisure and hospitality and airport work. I have a strong track record in assisting main contractor and specialist sub-contractors to resolve complex six- and seven-figure disputes during pre-action, saving them the costs and management time associated with High Court proceedings or arbitration.
