About

Steven is the global Head of the Construction, Engineering and Projects Group, based in our London office. Steven is a specialist construction and engineering lawyer.

Steven obtained a Civil and Structural Engineering degree and then worked as a civil engineer for a major contractor before switching to law. He advises employers, major contractors, engineers, subcontractors and suppliers on a wide range of construction matters, both domestically and internationally. He has a wide range of experience in  working on all the various forms of Construction and Engineering contracts. He is just as comfortable advising on procurement strategy and negotiating contracts as resolving disputes, whether it be via mediation, expert determination, adjudication, arbitration or litigation.

He sits as an Adjudicator on construction and engineering related disputes. He writes regularly for trade press such as Building and Construction News and is one of a panel of judges for the Construction News “Specialist Contractor of the year” awards. Steven is named in Legal Experts and was recently recommended as a Thought Leader by Who’s Who Legal for construction and is a frequent speaker on construction issues. He is currently ranked in both Construction directories (Legal 500 and Chambers).

With his engineering background, Steven can liaise effectively and efficiently with both factual and expert witnesses on what can be technically complex cases.
