Helen ThompsonLegal director
Legal director in the construction team
I am a legal director in the construction team advising in relation to the drafting and negotiation of all forms of construction and engineering agreements and wider issues in respect of such projects.
I am a dedicated construction and engineering law specialist with 15 years of post-qualification experience, preceded by two years of on-site industry experience, and have a career-long interest in best-practice construction procurement and supply-chain management. I specialise in advising on the delivery of construction and engineering projects, helping clients to understand the allocation and pricing of risk and to formulate legal policy.
I work with stakeholders across the industry to achieve their objectives efficiently and cost-effectively and have worked across many sectors from highways, utilities, process plant, rail and healthcare to social housing and private sector developments. I also have experience in dispute prevention and resolution.
Before training as a lawyer, my degree in construction engineering management allowed me to combine employment with a leading international contractor, four on-site placements on major UK/EU projects and training in engineering, accounts, quantity surveying, contract administration and procurement.
