I am a senior associate specialising in construction and public procurement and construction disputes. In particular, I regularly advise clients within the public, social housing and health and social care sectors.
I look to adopt a pragmatic and commercial approach, balancing my client’s objectives and the risks involved to achieve cost-effective outcomes.
I regularly advise and represent clients in both bringing and defending procurement challenges. I also help to resolve wider difficulties and concerns that arise during public procurement processes, including in relation to abnormally low tenders and exclusion of bids.
In addition, I advise and act for clients in a whole range of construction disputes, including relating to issues arising from contractor insolvency, defective works, payment mechanisms and professional negligence. My role includes advising on building and fire safety issues, including issues relating to defective cladding, fire-stopping and compartmentation.
I have wider experience in managing and resolving general commercial and contractual disputes, and complex debt recovery. This experience, combined with the fact that I act for clients in both bringing and defending claims, means that I bring a holistic and commercial view to my role and advice.
My experience in resolving disputes includes the use of mediation, adjudication and litigation.
