I am an Associate in the Commercial and Infrastructure department.
I specialize in construction and engineering dispute resolution and I have successfully advised a wide range of public and private sector clients, including government departments, local authorities, educational institutions, developers and commercial contractors in the resolution of disputes either by way of litigation, adjudication or mediation. I also have significant experience of advising on non-contentious construction issues, including advice on appropriate procurement routes, construction contracts, consultant appointments, payment protection and collateral warranties.
Before becoming a solicitor I originally trained and worked as an architect. My previous experience within the construction industry means that I have an excellent insight into the specific issues faced by the construction sector.
Tom’s expertise was very evident not only in technical matters but also on advising the most beneficial approach [...] Having such a personable, helpful, engaged and competent expert to assist us made the process significantly easier to deal with.
