About

I advise parties to domestic and international construction, engineering and building projects on commercial and contractual issues and also represents parties in all forms of dispute resolution. My expertise covers a range of sectors including transport and infrastructure, energy, nuclear, commercial development, healthcare, oil & gas and heritage.

My practice focuses on a wide range of domestic and international construction and engineering projects. My clients include main and specialist contractors, developers and cultural institutions. I assist clients with the procurement of projects and negotiation of contract documents. I also advise clients on technical, commercial and contractual issues arising during live projects. Where disputes are unavoidable, I prosecute and defend claims for clients through various dispute resolution methods including adjudication, arbitration, litigation, mediation and expert determination.

I am fortunate to have such a varied practice. Recent instructions have included an oil pipeline in Nigeria; the redevelopment of Battersea Power Station; a waste to energy facility; Hinkley Point nuclear power station; the redevelopment of Broadgate, London; a motorway extension; a hospital refurbishment; a landmark cultural gallery extension; an underground gas storage facility in Turkey and a water treatment plant.

Away from work I enjoy spending time with my family, keeping fit and active, travel and cooking.
