My areas of expertise are commercial litigation and disputes and construction advice and disputes. I support this with clear, practical advice on project and procurement contracts and agreements. My work is international, in particular across Russia, Eastern Europe, the Far East and Australia.
An Australian national I qualified there, working for five years, before moving to Hong Kong and doing the same. I speak French, German and Russian and have extensive experience of projects in Germany, Poland, Russia and the Baltic States.
I have a wide range of contracting experience, particularly in relation to the issues surrounding the delivery of projects on time and to cost. The projects I have worked on range from residential and commercial buildings to international sporting venues, power stations, transmission lines and process plants.
My work has included drafting and reviewing and the disputes relating to the terms and conditions of building contracts, professional appointments, collateral warranties and security documentation including performance guarantees and parent company guarantees.
