Consultant, Construction and Engineering
What I do...
I specialise in all aspects of non-contentious construction and engineering law.
I have a wide breadth of experience in all aspects of construction and engineering law, acting for a broad range of clients – developers, contractors, sub-contractors, consultants, purchasers, tenants and funds – advising on all aspects of the documentation used in construction projects, including building contracts, professional appointments, collateral warranties, bank and surety bonds, insurance issues and on the construction aspects of development, lease and funding agreements.
I have written for construction, engineering and legal journals including the 2004 reissue of Volume 5 (Building and Engineering Contracts) of the Encyclopaedia of Forms and Precedents and the 2006 reissue of Volume 38(1) and the 2007 reissue of Volume 38(3) (Sale of Land) of the same publication (published by LexisNexis Butterworths). I have also written the English chapter of an international book entitled Delay Clauses in International Construction Projects, September 2010 and published by Kluwer. I am a member of the Society of Construction Law (SCL) and of the Technology and Construction Solicitors Association (TeCSA).

Outside the office...
My job is my hobby and so I spend a lot of time at work. When I do get time to do other things, I enjoy swimming and the gym, travelling, the theatre, crime novels and dining out. Most importantly after my job, I love spending time with my family, especially my two children.
What my clients say...
“Having worked for a mutual client with Anna, I can highly recommend Anna’s forthright and pragmatic approach to achieving the client objectives. Anna played a crucial role in the client’s team, and I hope to work with her again in the future.”
Toby White, Associate Director, CB Richard Ellis Ltd
“Anna is the best construction lawyer that I have worked with to date. She provides expert knowledge and practical advice on key issues along with a pragmatic solution.”
Lisa Milne, Senior Manager, Property Solutions at Clydesdale Bank Plc.
“I have known Anna for about a year and she has proved to be an incredibly fun, tenacious and diligent worker. When she starts something she never lets it go and is great to work with. I would have no doubt in recommending her to anyone. They will engage a very loyal, a very hard working but extremely friendly woman.”
