Supporting your ambitions
Emma advises a number of master developer clients on the construction contracts for key strategic development sites. Given the complex nature of these sites and the large number of parties and stakeholders involved, Emma has had to take a pragmatic approach in dealing with third parties to get deals over the line and on time. Emma also has to make full use of project trackers and work closely with other members of the client's team in order to ensure that nothing falls off the radar.
She has advised on a number of projects which have involved modern methods of construction.
