Rob came to the Bar after a 20 year career as a consultant in the building and construction industry. He has qualifications in building, project management and law.
With his unique mix of practical and legal experience Rob is able to offer clients sensible, calculated, legal advice. This extends to “front end” contractual and strategic advice when projects are being established, or when disputes of various kinds arise, during or after construction.
Rob is a skilled and accredited mediator, a graded arbitrator and expert determiner. He is also an accredited adjudicator under the Building and Construction Industry Security of Payment Act 1999. His greatest asset is his ability to listen, to help clients understand their legal position and then to develop appropriate tactics for managing and/or resolving their disputes.
