Laura advises on both contentious and non-contentious matters and has experience of working with a vast range of public and private sector clients
These clients include developers, universities, colleges, registered providers, funders, contractors, sub-contractors and consultants advising on a variety of multi million pound residential, commercial and mixed use developments.
Within the non-contentious aspects of her role, Laura drafts and negotiates forms of building contract (generally JCT contracts but also NEC, FIDIC and bespoke forms of contract) together with framework agreements, PCSAs, bonds, PCGs, consultants appointments, novation agreements and collateral warranties. In addition, Laura has experience of drafting standard terms and conditions and producing due diligence reports on construction documents for both property and corporate deals.
On contentious matters, Laura provides practical and commercial advice to seek to resolve a range of disputes (quite often concerning payment, defects and delay) whether this is through a negotiated settlement, ADR, adjudication or litigation.
Every day is different. I enjoy learning about and understanding the commercial and legal challenges that our clients face. This demands innovative thinking and great intellectual agility to solve clients’ problems and deliver their desired results in a timely and cost effective manner.
