Works with clients in the public, private and not-for-profit sectors advising and assisting in resolution of disputes.
I am an experienced lawyer specialising in construction and public procurement related disputes and investigatory work helping clients to resolve issues in a cost effective way. I have particular expertise within the public and social housing sectors but also a wide range of experience in handling general commercial disputes and complex debt recovery.
I have experience in all standard forms of construction contract and advise on a wide range of disputes including disputes over final accounts, defective works, contractor administration, professional negligence as well as challenging and defending public procurement processes.
My experience includes resolving disputes through mediation, arbitration, adjudication and court as well as delivering training on dispute avoidance and management.
I also have experience advising in relation to fire safety issues, including removal of ACM cladding, emergency works, fire-stopping and compartmentation issues, and claims against consultants and contractors in the recovery of costs and losses sustained as a result of investigatory works and remedial schemes.
