Practice notes

James is a Principal Associate in our Construction and Engineering Group, specialising in transactional work. He leads on the construction aspects of development finance deals, and has experience working on major infrastructure projects.

James particularly advises on development finance-related documentation and risk, but has a broad range of experience across various construction-related matters. He advises on standalone development issues, such as the negotiation and drafting of construction and related contract documentation, to include industry standard forms, across a range of stakeholder perspectives. He advises major lenders on the construction aspects and related risks of such projects, as well as international and domestic, private and public sector entities on e.g. large-scale development, energy, transport and infrastructure projects generally.

James's current projects include advising clients in relation to London-based: £260m new-build mixed-use scheme; £200m new-build mixed-use scheme; £123m over-site Crossrail station; and £100m purpose-built student accommodation at four separate sites, as well as a renovated historic housing estate in Sheffield which utilised a modern method of construction.

James's previous experience includes construction disputes work (adjudication, arbitration, expert determination, mediation and litigation), as well an eighteen month part-time secondment in-house with the Natural England Legal team, which included advising on large-scale renewable energy projects, large-scale infrastructure projects, judicial reviews, and environmental site designations.
