A bit about me

I thrive on project work and enjoy being a part of large developments, giving legal, commercial and even technical support on everything from contract drafting and security documentation to resolving disputes. My clients include universities, banks and developers. I also act for main contractors as well as specialist sub-contractors working on major London projects.

I give practical, clear and structured advice, finding robust solutions to issues and getting to the heart of the matter quickly. I’m also direct, pragmatic and highly experienced having worked across a number of challenging contentious and non-contentious construction and development projects.

Outside of work I enjoy playing netball, reading, being part of the Campaign for Real Ale and good food.

Want to know more?

Read your contracts – keeping them in mind, using the terms properly and fairly will keep the projects running smoothly. They are not just there for the “divorces”.

Talk openly about risk allocation.

Use all of the available construction industry professionals – they really do add value.

Can I let the contractors start works on a Letter of Intent?  

Yes, if there is a proper agreement for a distinct piece of work, at a fixed sum and time period, and you have a good reason as to why you’re unable to let the full contract.

How do I get paid?

Make sure your employer is worth the risk and agree sensible payment terms. Consider direct contracts for large sub-contract packages and follow the contract.
