Senior Counsel, Galadari Advocates & Legal Consultants
Daniel specialises in arbitration of construction disputes. He has published learned articles and lectured extensively on construction and arbitration subjects and is a critical member of the Construction and Projects team at Galadari.
Daniel has a wide experience of the construction industry, both from a contentious and non-contentious perspective. He has put together development projects of all sizes, providing the legal and practical advice needed to manage risk. He has advised land owners, developers, contractors, purchasers and their professional teams and has carried out due diligence work for funders. Daniel has well practiced experience of drafting and negotiating contracts and all the associated documents, warranties, assignments, bonds and guarantees that are used on large developments. On the contentious side, Daniel has focused particularly on arbitration as a means of resolution for technical disputes, drafting pleadings and advising on the level of proof required in breach of contract claims, extensions of time, liquidated damages, the valuation of variations and loss and expense, the effects of delay and prolongation.
Daniel had worked in the construction industry for many years before taking the decision to retrain as a lawyer. He graduated (BA Hon) in Law from the University of Greenwich in 1995, called to the Bar of England and Wales in 1996, read for a Post Graduate Diploma in Arbitration Practice and Procedure in 1999, was admitted to the Roll Solicitors in England and Wales in 2001, became a Fellow of the Chartered Institute of Arbitrators and eventually a Chartered Arbitrator in 2002, finally taking his PhD from Manchester University in 2005.
