• I am a dispute resolution lawyer working within the firms' Construction and Engineering Contract Management and Dispute Resolution team. I have successfully acted on behalf of clients in a wide range of disputes and have experience of achieving resolution through litigation, adjudication and mediation. I regularly advise government departments, local authorities, housing associations, educational institutions, developers, professional consultants, commercial contractors and insurers on their legal position and how best to achieve their objectives.

    I have experience in resolving disputes involving the major standard forms of contract, such as the JCT and NEC, as well as PFI contracts, together with pursuing and defending professional negligence cases involving construction consultants.

    The past few years has seen a particular focus on fire safety issues, and I have assisted clients from all levels of the supply chain in resolving disputes arising from these issues.

    I also have experience of advising on non-contentious construction issues, including advice on development agreements, agreements for leases, construction contracts, consultant appointments and collateral warranties and dealing with insolvent contractors.
