I am a solicitor with 20+ years of experience, specialising in construction and engineering law. During that time I have been a partner in an international firm of solicitors and the in-house head of legal for two large contractors and developers. I have a number of reported cases decided in the Court of Appeal and the House of Lords that are now the leading authorities on the points of law that were in issue. I also have 23 years prior experience as a Chartered Building Surveyor and Chartered Builder working both in private practice and for contractors. I therefore have considerable knowledge and experience of both the construction industry and the applicable law to which it relates.
I specialise in providing contentious and non-contentious construction advice and assistance to firms of solicitors and in-house legal teams who either do not possess their own construction expertise, or who simply need an additional pair of hands to help cover busy periods, or holidays, etc.
Dispute Resolution: Adjudication, litigation, enforcement proceedings, injunctive relief, arbitration and mediation. To date, I have conducted well over 200 adjudications on the behalf of contractors, sub-contractors and consultants since the process first incepted under HGCRA’96.
Non-Contentious: Drafting and negotiating main contracts, sub-contracts, professional appointments, collateral warranties, novation agreements, guarantees, performance bonds, deeds of assignment, letters of intent, maximum price agreements, option agreements and licences, etc.
