In the real estate and construction sector, Adrian represents developers and contractors in claims involving delay and disruption and interim and final account disputes. On the non-contentious side, he drafts and advises on main and sub-contracts, terms of retainer, collateral warranties, bonds and other industry documents. He also deals with construction-related property claims including disputed land rights, JV issues, and breach of contracts.
Adrian’s insurance experience includes advising on coverage and professional indemnity disputes, as well as insurance documentation and regulatory matters.
Prior to the merger with Ince, Adrian was a partner in its predecessor firms Davenport Lyons and Gordon Dadds since joining the former in 2009.
"I inherently dislike making self-promoting statements. However, I possess long experience and recognised skill sets in construction, real estate and insurance, which I hope is useful for people involved in those sectors."
