I joined ALA in 2001, working initially on the Mawdesley to Warrington Gas Pipeline before moving onto Samlesbury to Helmshore Gas Pipeline and followed by many others. Living and working throughout the UK I have invaluable experience in the management and administration of contracts, the proper interpretation and effect of changed and additional clauses, particularly under NEC, as well as involvement and representation of clients in a number of adjudications.
I have a ‘hands-on’ background in the construction industry, which ensures clients receive good, honest, down to earth advice given from someone with practical knowledge of the difficulties and realities that are present in all construction projects. I am driven by helping clients overcome difficult contractual issues and also ensuring live projects are properly managed and administered, which is something that we really understand and excel in.
I now live close to our Northern office in Kirkby Lonsdale, and since 2016 mainly work from there, using my experience to provide clients with innovative solutions to often complex issues across all sectors of the construction industry, whilst continuing to help grow the business nationally and internationally (having recently established new offices in Warrington to sit alongside our Kirkby Lonsdale and London offices, and a subsidiary in Canada) whilst maintaining our very high standards and excellent results driven reputation.
Outside of work I have a wide variety of hobbies and interest, albeit most of my spare time is spent in dispute resolution issues relating to my 6 children!
