What can Justin do for you?

Supporting my clients' ambitions
As well as advising sureties on routine matters such as bond wording and facility/indemnity agreements, Justin supports his clients on more complex structures involving the surety instrument, such as advance payment refund guarantees in the shipbuilding industry. These high value, multi-jurisdictional programmes involve identifying how these instruments can be best deployed in the project, bespoke bond wording, bond-specific counter-indemnity arrangements, co-surety agreements, state guarantees and inter-creditor/ shared security arrangements. Justin also represents sureties on corporate restructurings and claims.
On the energy front, Justin advises power stations on the construction and long term service contracts with OEM manufacturers of gas and steam turbines, generators and the power train as a whole.

While his focus is to protect the sureties' interests he does so with a solution-led mentality."
