A solicitor in the construction and procurement team.
I am a solicitor in the construction and procurement department specialising in construction and procurement 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.
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. I also have experience acting for organisations in the education and social services sectors regarding procurement challenges against local authorities.
My experience includes resolving disputes through adjudication, mediation, arbitration and court action.
