As a paralegal based in a team of other construction and engineering specialists, I work on areas like dispute resolution. My clients include contractors, sub-contractors and engineers as well as architects, quantity surveyors and other construction professionals.
I approach each case with legal expertise and a commercial focus, helping my clients to get their building projects underway and supporting them by resolving any problems that may crop up. I always think about the issues from the client’s point of view, taking their priorities and expectations into account. This enables me to tailor my guidance so it best suits their needs.
Away from work, I like being with family and travelling to new places, especially in and around Europe. I also enjoy visiting art galleries and museums, and reading books – basically anything which makes me think about things in a new or different way!
Read the contract thoroughly before you sign it.
Do what the contract tells you to do.
If there’s something you need help with, speak to your construction law specialist as soon as you can. Dealing with it straight away could make it less expensive to resolve.

This very much depends on the circumstances, but our team are always here to help.
