I am an associate specialising in construction and public procurement-related disputes and investigatory work across a number of sectors including public sector organisations, housing associations, charitable bodies and health and social care providers.
I regularly act for clients in adjudication proceedings, procurement disputes and challenges, and look to adopt a pragmatic and commercial approach, balancing my client’s objectives and the risks involved to achieve cost-effective outcomes. I also advise on building safety issues and IT contract disputes, as well as providing advice and support in wider crisis and reputational management situations.
I regularly advise and represent clients in both bringing and defending procurement challenges and managing difficulties that arise in the course of public procurement processes. I also act for and advise clients in a whole range of construction disputes and adjudications, including relating to issues arising from contractor insolvency, defective works, final account valuations, contract administration, payment mechanisms and professional negligence. I provide advice and act for clients in relation to disputes arising from IT contracts and in managing crisis and reputational management issues.
In addition, I provide advice and act for clients in relation to building and fire safety issues, including the anticipated impact of the Building Safety Bill.
My experience of resolving disputes includes the use of mediation, adjudication and litigation.
