Work Department

Kathryn is a senior associate in our Capital Assets group, working in the Construction team carrying out both contentious and non-contentious work. She is experienced in drafting, negotiating and advising large institutional investors, Government departments and large private companies on the commonly-used families of standard form construction and engineering contracts (including JCT, NEC and FIDIC). She regularly works with the Real Estate and Banking teams in connection with the construction due diligence, reporting on the procurement structure, relevant construction documentation, warranty packages and contributing drafting to go into the associated transaction documents.

On the contentious side Kathryn assists clients with early dispute management, strategy and negotiation, acting in relation to adjudications including the preparation of referrals and responses, and conducting mediations.

Examples of Kathryn’s recent work include: drafting and negotiating building contracts and professional appointments in relation to various developments; carrying out construction due diligence for developers and institutional investors who are developing their property portfolios in the City of London and elsewhere in the United Kingdom; acting for a large property developer in preparation for a mediation on a major project in London’s West End; and advising an international bank on the resolution of construction issues and potential disputes at its London headquarters.

Kathryn has also completed two long term secondments, the first with Lend Lease based at the Athletes’ Village for the London 2012 Games and the second with Transport for London in their disputes team, during her time at both she ran and successfully defended adjudications on behalf of the client.
