Phil is head of Clarion’s construction team. Phil is dual qualified in English and Scottish Law. Phil has over 25 years' experience in both contentious and non-contentious matters advising large private and public sector bodies and all parties involved in the construction industry.
“I have a wide range of experience in advising public and private sector clients on contentious and non-contentious matters, and TCC enforcement proceedings and arbitrations.
I provide commercial advice concerning procurement, development agreements, building contracts, including JCT, FIDIC, and PFI contracts, sub-contracts, professional team appointments and collateral warranties. I work closely with my commercial property and banking colleagues providing construction related input into their transactions and documentation.
I advise clients in contentious matters representing parties in mediation, adjudication , arbitration and the Technology and Construction Courts. These contentious issues are often complex involving a number of parties in multi million pound claims across different jurisdictions.
My aim is to provide clients with an excellent service that is in tune with their business and their business needs. In doing so I seek to add value to the client’s projects by becoming one of the client’s team working on the project to deliver the client’s aims.
Working in a commercial services firm such as Clarion means I have exposure to a wide range of business clients who expect and receive quality advice.
I regularly provide training in construction related topics."
