Construction & Engineering
Seumas is a Senior Associate in our Construction & Engineering Team. He specialises in both contentious and non-contentious construction matters, often helping clients to understand and mitigate potential risks in construction projects and acting on their behalf in the event of a dispute.
Seumas’s practice covers a wide variety of construction work, including a number of high value cladding claims and his clients range from developers, through to contractors, sub-contractors and project funders, in a variety of transactional construction projects.
“The most rewarding aspect of contentious work is undoubtedly achieving a successful outcome for a client. Engaging in litigation, whether as claimant or defendant, carries certain unavoidable risks and uncertainties, which clients appreciate from a commercial perspective. Obtaining a successful judgement or a favourable settlement, is a great vindication of everyone’s efforts at the end of what can be an intensive process”
With a personable, thorough and pro-active approach to his work, Seumas aims to build long lasting professional relationships wherever possible and he enjoys getting to know his clients – always with a view to ensuring their key commercial objectives are achieved.
Seumas describes himself as “driven” and enjoys working collaboratively as part of a team. He says, “I feel lucky to be part of a team which allows me to develop as an individual, while offering plenty of opportunities to learn and improve as a lawyer alongside colleagues”.
