• I lead our Construction and Engineering Contract Management and Dispute Resolution team. I am a specialist in advisory and dispute resolution work in the construction, engineering and FM markets with particular expertise in the operational management of PFI/PPP contracts and the resolution of disputes in long term partnering contracts. I act for a wide range of employers, contractors, sub-contractors and consultants across a wide range of sectors and covering all aspects of construction and engineering law.

    I have over 20 years of experience in advising clients on both the detail of their disputes and the process by which they might achieve a satisfactory resolution of those disputes including arbitration, litigation, mediation and adjudication. I have a particularly strong track record of dealing with complex and fast moving adjudication claims which have now become the preferred method of formal dispute resolution construction and engineering contracts.


    I regularly speak to client groups on PFI and PPP contracts and dispute issues.

    • Advised on disputes arising from the first termination of a PFI contract in the UK.
    • Advised on the first formal dispute resolution procedure to establish liability for the fire compartment defects in a PFI hospital.

Reliable, pragmatic and not afraid to challenge my assumptions
