referral advocacy, opinions, advice

A venture involving uncertainty, such as a contract, business operation or dispute, can benefit from the additional perspective of independent advice. It can give comfort or warning.

I provide legal opinions and advice on an referral basis to colleagues (as well as directly to clients), including in the following areas:

  • contract review and interpretation
  • public and administrative law powers, duties, and liability
  • construction and infrastructure projects
  • procurement regulation
  • health and safety regulation
  • human rights and business duties, obligations, liability, and risk
  • assessment of legal risk.
I also accept instructions from colleagues to act as advocate in arbitration and ADR.
