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 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.

One construction client told Chambers UK that the team “delivered high-quality work, on time and on budget” whilst being “very personable to deal with” and skilled “at negotiating with other parties and advising on obscure technicalities”. Legal 500 notes our busy workload of “London-based development projects and higher education projects”. For schools and academies, Chambers UK stressed that we remain "a popular choice for private schools and large academy trusts seeking advice on a range of education matters" and Legal 500 highlights the range of matters (“employment to conversion to financing”) on which we are regularly instructed.

What do others say?

I am rated by the directories for my construction and academies work, with both describing me as “solution-focused”.

What else should you know?

I am honoured to have been invited to be a member of the PLC Construction consultation board, one of the editors of Estates Gazette's long-standing Legal Notes feature (with responsibility for construction and professional negligence cases) and a corresponding member of the Institute of Legal and Constitutional Research at the University of St Andrews.

My membership of key professional bodies - the Technology and Construction Solicitors' Association, Forum for the Built Environment and the Society of Construction Law - helps to keep me up-to-date with developments in the construction sector.
