My role

I am a construction lawyer specialising in resolving complex construction disputes, and regularly advise clients in the social housing, local government, and charity sectors. I am familiar with a broad range of standard form contracts and routinely advise on the full scope of construction disputes including payment, contractor insolvency, final account disputes, breach of development agreement obligations, entitlement to extensions of time, recovery of liquidated damages, and defective works.

My experience

I have particular experience advising in relation to fire safety issues, including defective GRP composite doors, removal of ACM cladding, defective sprinkler installation, fire stopping and compartmentation issues, and claims against contractors and consultants for the recovery of costs associated with investigatory and remedial schemes.

My experience includes arbitration, adjudication and adjudication enforcement, mediation, and court proceedings, including appeals to the House of Lords (now the Supreme Court). I regularly provide training to clients and speak at national events and conferences.
