A bit about me

As a chartered quantity surveyor and a non-solicitor partner in the construction and engineering team, I can help you with both legal and commercial advice. I’m also a chartered construction manager, chartered arbitrator and panel adjudicator with professional qualifications in the areas of construction and alternative dispute resolution.

My clients include main contractors, sub-contractors, architects, developers and private individuals. I use the knowledge and experience I’ve gained to teach construction law at a number of Universities and help clients avoid and resolve issues and disputes. I can see circumstances from several different viewpoints and will work with a legal and commercial focus to meet the needs of my client and the circumstances. I often work out of office hours.

I’m reliable and analytical, with a real passion for the construction industry in which I had a career before joining a firm of solicitors. I previously ran my own chartered quantity surveying and project management company, so I know the industry from the inside out. I like supporting others and get a real sense of satisfaction helping clients to avoid or resolve difficult situations.

Outside of work, I love being with my family. I also enjoy art and sculpture, poetry, classical music and watching rugby, especially if it’s England at Twickenham.

Want to know more?

Read and keep rereading your contract and follow what it says for guidance. It is not a weapon.

If there’s something that you don’t fully understand in your contract, ask for advice straight away.

Don’t act in haste or you’ll suffer the consequences.
