Matthew is a Civil Engineer with experience in heavy civils, infrastructure and building construction works. His initial
experience within the industry was gained in specialist marine and offshore construction and then moved on to more mainstream Civil
Engineering and Building Projects. He has substantial practical, commercial and contractual experience gained from delivery of a
variety of infrastructure, building and construction projects in the UK and overseas.

Matthew’s ability to proactively distil a contractual, commercial or operational claims issue down to a point of resolution and move
forward, has led him to become increasingly involved in more contractually, commercially or operationally complex/sensitive
matters. He works collaboratively with clients and has a proactive approach achieving resolution of both Quantum and Delay claims.
