About Adam

Adam heads up our Construction and Engineering Team. He advises some of the firm's biggest regional, national and international clients and is recognised nationally for his legal expertise in the construction and engineering sector by Legal 500 and Chambers & Partners. Legal 500 UK also names Adam a 'Next Generation Partner' who 'excels in non-contentious mandates.'

He acts for contractors, developers and funders across a range of industries including infrastructure, heavy engineering, sub-sea and offshore, commercial and residential. Adam has advised on the largest buy-to-rent and student schemes being procured outside of London and has also been involved in some of the largest construction projects in the North East in recent years. 

Adam is experienced in dealing with a range of industry-standard contracts including JCT, NEC, MF/1 and FIDIC and is well versed in the use of performance bonds, guarantees, warranties and other construction-related security documents.

"I would like to express our gratitude at the assistance Adam Aston provided throughout; his diligent, thorough efforts no doubt greatly assisted us in reaching a satisfactory outcome.  

I was always particularly pleased at the quality of the legal documentation that he produced on our behalf and was most certainly a great reflection on Muckle as an organisation.  His advice was always considered and his aim throughout was to ensure we got the contract we wanted, following on from our brief.  I am aware that our consultants also speak highly of both Adam and Muckle."
