Examples of Lindsay's work include:

  • Representing a contractor on a multi-million pound piece of litigation encompassing common aspects of a final account dispute, including payment for variations, loss and expense and extension of time.
  • Representing a main contractor in a multi-party litigation case in the London Technology and Construction Court. This was a technically complex defects case and due to the thorough preparation of the expert and witness evidence a settlement on the first day of trial was achieved.

  • Advising a major house builder on a variety of disputes.
