Rupert Sydenham has advised on legal issues arising from construction projects for over 20 years. He brings a wealth of experience in helping clients ensure projects are put and stay on track and, where disputes are unavoidable, in the conduct of formal and informal dispute resolution proceedings. His experience derives from projects in many different sectors and jurisdictions, including from a 10 year period between 1998 and 2008 in which he was based in the firm's Hong Kong office. In addition, Rupert runs a procurement disputes practice. He has represented clients in several of the highest profile procurement cases reported in England over the past few years.
