Senior Associate

I am a non-contentious construction lawyer who specialises in both digital construction and sporting infrastructure projects.


I am a non-contentious construction lawyer who specialises in digital construction and projects relating to sports infrastructure.

I have advised a Premier League football club regarding the expansion of its existing stadium and the new build of its £100m training ground. I have also advised a major international sporting event on construction and overlay contracts. As a massive sports fan personally, I really enjoy this type of work and find it easy to understand my client’s requirements.

I also specialise in all aspects of digital construction from BIM to digital twins. As an ex CAD engineer, I come to this side of my practice with a real practical knowledge of the subject matter. I sit on the Digital Framework Task Group. This group helps to guide the National Digital Twin programme for the Centre for Digital Built Britain (a UK Government and University of Cambridge initiative).

When not working I enjoy watching all manner of sports and am training to be a football coach, having hung up my own playing boots after a long time playing for Loughborough University and other local clubs.
