Susan Lindsey

Call 1997

Susan’s practice is building and engineering related dispute resolution. She no longer undertakes contentious work as party representative. As counsel Susan gained experience of a wide spectrum of construction and engineering contract claims, including defects, delay and final account claims, under both standard and bespoke contract forms. She also has considerable experience in negligence claims against construction professionals, and has acted in construction professional disciplinary proceedings both as party representative and as legal advisor to the tribunal. Before coming to the Bar Susan qualified and practised as a chartered architect. Her architectural experience mainly comprised medium to large-scale commercial projects, and included being both office and site based. Susan has experience of acting as certifying architect in traditional contracting arrangements, and of design and build procurement acting for contractors. Susan has found her technical background of great value in her practice as counsel, tribunal and mediator, and she has experience of dealing with a wide range of technical matters.
