More about Ben

Ben is a specialist construction lawyer with over 15 years' experience, advising clients in relation to disputes arising out of complex and high value construction projects.

Ben has been based in Asia since 2011 and has advised on disputes arising out of some of the largest and most significant projects in the region. This includes the construction of multi-billion dollar onshore and offshore oil and gas facilities, power plants, underground railways and tunneling projects, ports, roads, refineries, mines and processing plants, and reclamation works. 

Highly recommended by the independent directories that review the legal market, Ben is described as "an accomplished and impressive lawyer, responsive, friendly, personable and a delight to work with" (Legal 500 Asia Pacific 2020); he is also praised as being an "arbitration specialist" and "very, very smart, with a strategic mind and huge knowledge of international construction" (Legal 500 Asia Pacific 2019).

Ben has worked for or against corporations or on projects connected to almost every country in Asia-Pacific including China, Hong Kong, South Korea, Japan, India, Bangladesh, Thailand, Vietnam, Malaysia, Indonesia, the Philippines, Singapore, and Australia.

He has acted as counsel on arbitrations seated in numerous jurisdictions and subject to the institutional rules of the ICC, SIAC, HKIAC and LCIA, as well as ad hoc arbitrations subject to the UNCITRAL rules. 

Qualified in Hong Kong and England & Wales, Ben has been granted full registration as a Registered Foreign Lawyer in the Singapore International Commercial Court. He is also the Secretary and International Liaison Officer for the Society of Construction Law in Hong Kong.
