Construction & Engineering
Juliet has experience of construction disputes, including those arising from issues of design, delay and breach of regulations, and experience of a variety of standard form contracts including NEC, ACE and CPA. She welcomes instructions on behalf of and against construction professionals.
She was recently instructed as sole counsel in a claim valued at £1.25 million against a leading structural and civil engineering consultancy and a construction firm. The claim concerning a London property which sustained significant structural damage during basement construction works.
Juliet is currently instructed in several actions against construction firms in relation to large scale works to residential properties, and in relation to inappropriate installation of cavity wall insulation.
Juliet accepts instructions made via the Chambers’ Fixed Fee Adjudication Scheme. Most recently she settled a Notice and Referral on behalf of a heating and ventilation consultant in an Adjudication concerning the defective installation of heating apparatus in two commercial premises.
As a pupil, Juliet assisted Crispin Winser in a claim concerning the Party Wall etc. Act 1996 relating to a long-running basement construction dispute, which was complicated by allegations of fraud and collusion with the third surveyor.
Juliet is a member of the SCL and TECBAR, and has marshalled with Mr Justice Waksman at the TCC.
