Position

Paul was called to the Bar in 2001 after following a career as a chartered quantity surveyor in the construction industry for 16 years. Consequently Paul’s main interests and specialist areas of practice involve construction and property. He regularly advises on, drafts statements of case and appears in court in all manner of property-related matters including construction contracts, boundary disputes, trespass, nuisance, rights of way and adverse possession. Having a detailed knowledge of the construction industry from the inside out has proved to be very useful and advantageous to Paul’s clients particularly in cases involving technically complex construction, contractual and quasi-contractual issues. As well as his construction and property practice Paul has a general common law and chancery practice with a particular emphasis on the following areas of specialism: landlord and tenant, both commercial and residential; cohabitation disputes involving the Trusts of Land and Appointment of Trustees Act; Inheritance Act; professional negligence, particularly concerning professionals within construction; personal injury. In addition to his substantive practice areas Paul also has a very well-established practice in costs disputes and appears regularly in detailed assessment hearings on behalf of both claimants and defendants.
