I am a specialist in construction law with over 9 years' experience in the sector, both in house and now in private practice.
Prior to my transition to private practice in 2018 I spent 6 years in house with a large and well known contractor in the East Midlands providing key advice on some of the region's most prominent developments.
I have had exposure to and advised on a diverse range of industry standard and bespoke construction contracts including projects ranging from domestic developments, affordable housing, to large scale commercial developments. My in house experience couples a wealth of practical knowledge and commercial sensitivity with considerable awareness and understanding of the legalities pertinent to the industry.
During my time in private practice I have provided construction advice to Real Estate lawyers on the transformation of Langley Holdings Estate to a multimillion pound covid hub. I have also notably provided corporate support and assisted in the development of a 5* hotel in the North West of England, providing contractual advice to the development team throughout.
I provide tailored advice to all levels of the construction sector including advising funders, developers, consultants, contractors and sub-contractors.
As well as providing non-contentious contractual support, I am well versed in construction disputes. I advise on a wide variety of construction disputes, managing claims from pre-action through to trial. I also have practical experience of a variety of Alternative Dispute Resolution processes including mediation and adjudication.
In addition to the above, in 2018 I was invited to write and deliver a module on construction law to graduate students at Lincoln University and I was the chairperson for the Forum for the Built Environment, Lincoln division in 2019 – 2020.
