What can I do for you?
I head a team of lawyers who help clients with the drafting and negotiation of all types of construction and engineering documents. We work with everyone involved in the sector – occupiers, developers, funders, contractors and consultants – and have a strong track record in education, health and regeneration projects.
I also head our national academies practice, leading a dedicated team skilled in advising clients on all aspects of academies projects and helping them to solve the the challenges they face after conversion.
Supporting my clients’ objectives
My team appreciates that the end product of our work should be a successful construction or engineering project or academy, ideally one that’s delivered on time and within budget. The challenge is to help our clients meet that goal every single time.
We are rated for our "strength in...education, healthcare and utilities" and for our "growing cross-border capabilities in both disputes and projects" (Legal 500) and clients think we are "extremely good and very easy to work with" (Chambers UK).
What do others say?
I appear to have persuaded one client to enjoy contract law: “I wanted to write and thank you for the time we spent working together ... It has been an excellent time and I have learnt a hell of a lot, not least how to manage a major project with good humour. I have even enjoyed the contractual aspects of the work, and there can't be many who can say that – entirely due to my legal team.”
I am rated as a leading lawyer by both Legal 500 ("Stuart Pemble gives 'well-thought-out advice'") and Chambers UK ("His advice was positive and helpful to agreeing the deal").
What else should you know?
I am a member of the PLC Construction consultation board and am one of the editors of Estates Gazette's long-standing Legal Notes feature with responsibility for construction and professional negligence.
