A solicitor in the construction team.
I am a solicitor in the construction department specialising in construction dispute resolution. I am involved in advising the public sector, private sector and not-for-profit sector on the resolution of construction disputes and management of risk. I am also involved in supporting and advising on construction contracts and procurement disputes.
In 2020, I obtained the Higher Rights of Audience (Civil) qualification, which allows me to conduct civil advocacy in the High Court.
I have acted in a wide range of construction disputes and have experience advising on issues that arise during projects, including delay, payment and defective works.
My experience includes resolving disputes through adjudication, mediation, arbitration and court action.
