Jayne Meakin specialises in non-contentious construction procurement and has a great breadth of experience, which spans over 15 years, advising a range of clients from PLCs, major national and international retailers, property developers, funders, off-shore trusts, consultants and contractors.
Jayne also has experience in advising business owners on construction matters arising from the acquisition of new premises or their undertaking of extension and refurbishment works to commercial or manufacturing sites.
Work often involves Jayne working closely with commercial property colleagues in critical support work to larger transactions.

In addition to Building Contracts, Jayne regularly advises on wider procurement documentation such as consultant appointments, collateral warranties, bonds, parent company guarantees, sub-contracts and letters of reliance.
