Kieran is an Associate within the Construction and Engineering Team

With over 13 years’ experience in legal practice, Kieran advises clients in both contentious and non-contentious construction and engineering matters. Before specialising in construction and engineering law, Kieran practised in civil and commercial litigation for over nine years – five of those as an advocate.

He has acted for a variety of clients including contractors, consultants, listed national developers, local authorities and NHS trusts, as well as regularly providing construction and engineering input in connection with PFI schemes and disputes.


Kieran has acted in a range of complex and high-value claims surrounding PFI, contract, negligence, statutory and construction-related insolvency disputes, including:

  • PFI default termination
  • Eight-figure infrastructure and professional negligence disputes
  • Multi-million pound IT service contract disputes
  • Defective cladding system claims.

He has represented clients in all dispute resolution forums, including adjudication, arbitration, mediation and litigation; predominantly in the Technology and Construction Court. Areas of dispute have included defective work and design, payment, loss and expense, variations, extensions of time and contract formation, including declaratory relief.

Kieran is experienced in advising on and preparing a wide suite of construction documentation, including framework agreements, bespoke and industry standard forms of building contracts (JCT, NEC, FIDIC), professional appointments and collateral warranties.

Kieran is also a founding committee member of the Forum for the Built Environment – North East division.
