Rachel specialises in construction and engineering law and advises on both contentious and non contentious matters.

For the last 13 years, Rachel has been based in China. Her practice focus is on advising a range of clients including large Chinese SOE contractors on their outbound work with a focus on infrastructure and energy projects. She advises clients on their claims, disputes and dispute avoidance measures and has wide experience advising on arbitrations and litigation. She is experienced in drafting and negotiating a wide range of standard form and bespoke construction contracts and ancillary documents. Her technical background assists her rapid assimilation of technical information in complex projects and over the years has gained deep understanding of the needs of her Chinese clients.
