Janine joined the firm as a paralegal in 2014. Following this she started her training contract and her first seat as a trainee was Construction and Engineering. Clearly the team and the work made a big impression and after experiencing various other seats, Janine chose to take up a permanent role there after qualifying in 2017.
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.
