Construction, Engineering & Projects

Steven advises employers, contractors, sub-contractors and suppliers on a wide range of building and civil engineering matters, both domestically and internationally.

He has a wide experience of working on the various forms of standard conditions such as JCT, ICE, NEC, MF/1, IChemE and FIDIC, as well as numerous bespoke forms of construction contract. Steven advises on the full scope of construction issues ranging from procurement/contract strategies through to dispute avoidance/resolution.

Steven has had articles published in Building, Civil Engineering Surveyor, the Construction Law Journal and Construction Law. He is co-author of the “Procurement Route” chapter in the recently published “ICE Manual of Construction Law” and a named contributor in the “Final Report on Construction Industry Arbitrations” published by ICC.

Before switching to law, Steven worked as a civil engineer for a major contractor. With this engineering background, Steven is able to liaise effectively and efficiently with both factual and expert witnesses on what can be technically complex cases.

He writes regularly in the construction press and is named in Legal Experts and Who’s Who Legal for construction.

Steven is admitted to practise as a solicitor in England and Wales.
