Construction & Engineering

Janine Slesser

Solicitor

Having joined the team as a paralegal in September 2014 Janine has recently taken the next step in her career as a trainee solicitor.  Janine will remain with the Construction and Engineering team for her first seat.

Janine’s experience within the team has been broad and she assists all members of the team dealing with both contentious and non contentious matters.  The non-contentious aspects of her role have involved drafting and negotiating a variety of construction documents including building contracts, professional appointments and collateral warranties.  Janine works closely with clients from the very beginning of a project to ensure all practical and commercial considerations are addressed.

Janine also assists with contentious matters such as adjudications, international arbitrations and more traditional litigation.  Janine has experience in drafting a variety of litigation documents such as Instructions to Counsel and experts, Claim Forms and general correspondence between the parties.

Outside of work Janine loves to travel and lived in Australia for a year in 2012.  Since returning to the UK she has not lost the travel bug and in her spare time is often found planning the next trip away.
