What can Gary do for you?

Gary is a specialist in construction and engineering law.  He advises clients on:

  • drafting and negotiating building contracts, sub-contracts, appointments and warranties; and
  • avoiding, managing and resolving contractual disputes, in particular regarding payment, extensions of time and loss and expense.

Gary is regularly involved in adjudications and court proceedings and has particular experience of JCT and NEC contracts.

Supporting your ambitions

Gary's highlight of the past year was acting for one of the UK's leading demolition sub-contractors in successful adjudication proceedings against a major UK main contractor.  The main contractor was refusing to make payment for various additional works instructed under the contract and refusing to award an extension of time or loss and expense. 

Gary advised the client before the adjudication and during the adjudication proceedings.  He successfully argued the sub-contractor's case and got an award of c.£1m in its favour.  As a mark of success the Adjudicator also ordered the main contractor to pay the Adjudicator's fees in full.

What do others say?

Gary acted for a county council in a £30m engineering dispute with Carillion.  The client commented that "Gary’s technical skill is highly valued” and “we would have absolute confidence in putting Gary before the Leader of the Council".

Another commented that "you’re a dream to work with and I know I’m pulling you in lots of directions, so thank you".

What else should you know?

Gary leads the NextGen Cambridge initiative at M&R, which encourages the next generation of talent at M&R to develop their professional networks and shape the future of Cambridge. 

He also enjoys scuba diving and previously worked as an underwater videographer.  If you ever receive his out of office it probably means he's underwater chasing turtles or sharks with a camera.
