I'm an associate in our Real Estate Group in London, specialising in construction and engineering projects and transactions.

I advise on issues and contracts throughout the construction project lifecycle in the UK and internationally, with particular experience in technology and energy across real estate, investment/development finance, development, regeneration and corporate matters.

I advise our clients through all the stages of domestic and international construction, engineering transactions and projects together with assistance for any ongoing construction needs. I have experience in preparing, drafting and negotiating construction documents, across key industry forms and also bespoke contracts specific to client and project requirements.

I deal regularly with key project documents, such as, building contracts, professional consultant appointments, and collateral warranties, together with preliminary and ancillary documents as may be required. I regularly provide advice on and draft development-related points of commercial, corporate, energy, and real estate transactions, with my practice involving me across the firm's international leisure & retail (and hotels team), technology & communcations, energy & utilities, and financial services sectors.

I act for a range of clients such as funds, banks, developers, asset managers, construction professionals, and individuals on both commercial and mixed-used works. Working with different types of clients and advising on what may be bespoke or particular project or building requirements means I often deal with construction and engineering issues arising in very specific commercial contexts and financial or procurement arrangements.

A key part of my advice is providing project/transaction management to help clients achieve their project outcomes and meet third party requirements. I am also involved in procurement strategy discussions at the start of projects and throughout as business needs evolve.

With expertise and particular interest in technology in the construction process and within the fabric of a buiding, I draw on experience over a range of construction and energy projects, asset management and landlord and tenant matters, together with my time in-house. I also have expertise in handling construction disputes, advising throughout the litigation process, mediation and settlement.
