The Legal 500 - The Clients Guide to Law Firms

My father, who is a civil engineer, inspired me to develop a practice in construction law. I really enjoy getting to grips with the technical and factual issues associated with disputes in this sector. For me, nothing can beat early involvement in a project where timely legal advice and assistance can make a real difference between the life or death of a project.
