HCR Law Events

A bit about me

I’ve always been fascinated by the building industry and its ability to positively impact on people and society. Construction law also has a blend of contentious and transactional elements and can be particularly technical and challenging.

I work with private individuals, developers, contractors and sub-contractors who are working in the construction and engineering sector. If you need help navigating your contract, I’ll advise you on any potential risks and I also help to resolve disputes in a commercially focused and pragmatic way.

I’m extremely dedicated to getting the results my clients want, whether that’s dealing with highly complex and detailed matters or more simple, transactional cases. I never lose sight of the bigger picture and work hard to reach solutions which are both commercially beneficial and cost-effective.

In my spare time I like travelling, reading, hiking and rock climbing. I also enjoy football and I’m an Aston Villa season ticket holder.

Want to know more?

Know your contract.

Make sure you comply with the payment provisions in the contract.

Get legal advice early – it can help to resolve issues before formal dispute resolution procedures like adjudication or litigation are initiated by either party.

Should I adjudicate/issue proceedings?

This very much depends on the facts of the case, including the merits of the respective positions and the sums involved in the dispute.

How can I best protect my position against commercial risk?

This depends on the facts involved but if you can, then enter into a contract on commercially beneficial terms, ensuring that all parties that are expected to enter into collateral warranties have actually done so.
