Whether companies require advice on breach of contracts or management of dispute resolution, it is vital that they know we can provide the expert support they need during these challenging times.”

David Harries, Partner and Phil’s team leader said: “Phil is a tremendous addition to the firm and his wealth of specialist construction knowledge will be a huge asset to us and to our clients, especially during the current crisis”.
