Jan heads up the Construction Law Department advising her clients in relation to all aspects of construction from negotiation of building contracts, appointment of the design and build team to development and project agreements and security documents associated with the development.
Practical, knowledgeable and approachable, with many years of experience, Jan works closely with her clients to meet their objectives in an efficient and costs effective way.
Jan has worked in the construction sector for many years and advises her clients both regionally and nationally in connection with a wide variety of construction projects but has particular expertise in projects involving schools, community facilities, retail & care homes.
She also specialises in disputes relating to construction projects; understanding that disputes are an unwelcome drain on her clients’ time and resources and risk affecting their commercial relationships, reputation and sometimes solvency.
Jan is experienced in all aspects of construction law and advocates the need for her clients to take early legal advice before starting a construction project; she is a specialist in ensuring that documents are carefully written so that her developer clients do not pay beyond the requirements of the agreement and that her construction clients are paid.
Professional and approachable, Jan makes the client's priorities the focus of her advice and legal guidance.
