Simon is Head of Eversheds Global Construction and Engineering Group. He deals with all construction contractual issues and is praised by 'The Legal 500' and 'Chambers Guide to the Legal Profession' for his strong reputation. He is responsible for managing the construction services provided to property and development clients, whether public or private sector, across Eversheds.
Simon advises on a full range of procurement options in particular on JCT, ICE, ECC, FIDIC and bespoke contract conditions for a wide range of projects acting for employers, contractors and members of the professional team. He has particular experience of major projects procured under the private finance initiative and regeneration projects. He and his team are therefore well used to meeting the challenge of complex ventures involving a range of legal disciplines and a multiplicity of interested parties.
Whilst his emphasis is on sound contractual structures supported by a partnering ethos, Simon is also able to assist in the identification and resolution of construction disputes. He has wide experience of technology and construction court matters, arbitrations and adjudications. He is also a strong advocate of alternative dispute resolution procedures such as mediation and early expert evaluation.
