Jonathan Hosie is a partner in the Construction and Engineering Practice, who focuses on the management of risks under construction and engineering contracts. He provides clients with both front-end procurement and drafting advice on project documentation as well as dispute management representation, involving such diverse projects as power stations, petrochemical plants and process engineering, mining concessions, tunnels, transportation systems (road, rail and water), large utility contracts (in the water, energy and telecommunications sectors), city centre office developments, hospitals, schools and mixed use developments. As part of his commitment to the industry, he served on the Council of the Society of Construction Law for more than 10 years and has chaired a number of industry working groups, including within the Design Build Foundation (now Constructing Excellence) and for the Joint Contracts Tribunal on the development of a multi-disciplinary form of appointment. Jonathan has extensive international experience, having worked on projects in Africa, Central and South America, Russia, Scandinavia, Eastern Europe, the Middle East, India and the Far East. In these matters he has undertaken both front-end procurement and contract drafting work as well as resolving claims through arbitration.
