Iain is an Associate in the Construction & Engineering department and advises clients in relation to both contentious and non-contentious matters.
I joined Fladgate in 2021 from a leading Northern Irish law firm, having specialised in construction law since qualifying as a Solicitor in 2017. I have experience acting for a wide range of clients in the construction industry including Funders, Developers, Consultants, Contractors and Sub-contractors.
