Andrew McFadden focuses on the construction and infrastructure sectors, bringing significant experience in procurement disputes, construction related litigation and employment issues.

Andrew advises a wide range of clients, but specialises in providing services to the infrastructure sector, and regularly advises major construction and engineering companies in respect of contractual, procurement and other disputes. His strong relationships with his clients allow him to understand the acute needs of this sector, resulting in him providing a tailored approach to his clients’ specific legal and business needs.
