Senior Associate, Dispute Resolution and Litigation

How can I help you?

I specialise in contentious construction matters, including claims relating to breach of contract, the recovery of interim and final payments, valuation and variation disputes, defective works and professional negligence.  I act for developers, contractors, sub-contractors and individuals.

I am experienced in referring and responding to adjudications and firmly believe in this method of resolving construction disputes.

I run the NFU LAS scheme and am the firm’s main point of contact with the NFU.  I advise agricultural and farming clients on a range of disputes, including adverse possession, rights of way, easements, boundary issues, rights of light, contracts and commercial claims.

Delivering what you really need

I understand the stress and financial implications that come with any form of dispute and will always provide commercial advice, allowing my clients to make informed commercial decisions from the outset.

I believe that alternative dispute resolution is a powerful tool, and proactively seek to negotiate and settle disputes where possible, including through mediation.  The Legal 500 2020 edition describes me as being “well-versed in ADR”.

What else should you know?

I qualified at a well-known regional firm at the beginning of 2018 where I worked for over 5 years.  Before this, I spent over 8 years in London working in both private practice and an in-house legal department. I joined Tees in September 2020.

The Legal 500 2024 edition lists me as a key lawyer and describes me as “very professional and very approachable”.
