Jon is a Construction and Engineering specialist, handling both contentious and non-contentious legal work. His practice focuses, largely, on acting for employers and their design teams, as well as contractors and engineers. Jon has particular expertise in energy-related issues, infrastructure, precision engineering and cyber security installations whilst most of his casework is concentrated on the drafting of contracts, providing procurement advice and advising on disputes both within the UK and internationally. He can also provide clients with strategic support in rationalising the procurement of their supply chain risk, or advise on risk with regards to where that lies within their own contracts for tender.
In addition, Jon can assist with payment and liability issues on current projects, as well as advise on an effective strategy to resolve any issues.
Jon is an ADR accredited mediator, which sees him advising clients on alternative ways to resolve disputes, avoiding the litigation process. He is, however, also a TeCSA solicitor and very experienced in litigious matters, whenever the need arises for clients to engage him in a more formal dispute resolution arena.
