Harry’s practice in construction law continues to develop. Harry has experience across the various areas of construction law, from claims against new home builders to disputes concerning larger commercial construction contracts.
New Home Builders
Harry has appeared on behalf of several of the UK’s well-known new home builders defending claims brought alleging defective works.
With a background in the construction industry, specifically roofing, Harry is very capable of handling complex expert evidence and discussing matters with expert building surveyors in conference. Harry’s recent cases in this area have left him well versed with the specifics of the specific defects which are commonly pleaded in these cases, such as issues with the internal air ventilation system.
Harry understands the value of the reputation of home builders and is able to deal with papers and instructions with this in mind.
Construction work to residential dwellings
Harry has gained a significant depth of experience dealing with cases involving residential dwellings and refurbishment works. He is particularly well versed at handling poorly particularised contracts between employers and contractors and dealing with the evidence accordingly.
As with new homes, Harry’s knowledge of the finer points of residential construction disputes is rapidly developing. For example, Harry’s most recent instructions involved the use of Sarking on a Scottish property.
Commercial Construction Contracts
In addition to his broad experience in dealing with residential dwellings, Harry has handled matters involving JCT Contracts and litigation involving large-scale commercial contracts.
