Steffan is an Associate in the Projects & Construction group with experience acting for a range of parties, including developers, contractors, sub-contractors and consultants in respect of non-contentious and contentious construction matters.
Steffan’s non-contentious work primarily involves acting for developers and JVs in relation to major UK projects, which includes drafting and negotiating building contracts (typically based on the JCT standard forms), professional appointments and other ancillary documents. He also has experience in relation to financing domestic projects, having advised parties seeking to procure debt/equity funding and organisations providing finance. Steffan also advises professional consultants, principally architects, on the terms of their appointments.
On the contentious side, Steffan has acted for parties using a range of dispute resolution methods, including High Court litigation, international arbitration and adjudication, and has even acted for a client before the Privy Council at the Supreme Court.
Steffan has also gained valuable experience, spending six months on secondment in the legal team of a Tier 1 Contractor, where he was involved in tendering for new projects and in administrating existing projects.
