Stuart is a Partner in our Construction, Energy and Projects team. He undertakes contentious and non-contentious construction, infrastructure, energy and major projects, from procurement to completion for public and private bodies.
Stuart was promoted to Partner in November 2019. He acts for national and local government, private sector developers, contractors, design consultants and financial institutions.
He has advised on bespoke and standard-form construction contracts for routine projects, through to £multi-billion financed schemes from procurement to completion. His work ranges from drafting and negotiating sector specific agreements (including bespoke and standard form contracts, e.g. JCT and NEC) for road projects; to catering and facilities management contracts, resolving contractual disputes including issues relating to step-in rights, measured term contracts and final accounts.
Stuart regularly delivers external training on a variety of topics and has had a number of articles published in sector focused publications – most recently discussing the future of our cities in view of the growth of innovative transport firms and an in-depth look at Smart Cities.
Stuart is currently recognised as a Rising Star in The Legal 500.
