Partner in Beale and Company
Main areas of practice
Since qualifying with Beale and Company in 2000, Heidi has advised engineers, architects, surveyors and their insurers in respect of a broad range of professional indemnity claims and contractual disputes relating to projects both in the UK and abroad. This has involved acting for clients both in a defendant and claimant capacity in litigation, arbitration, mediation and adjudication.
Heidi has also been involved in providing claims handling assistance to the in-house legal department of a leading consulting engineer and business services group. In doing so, she has gained invaluable first hand experience of the industry, risk management strategies and the practical commercial issues associated with claims handling from a client perspective.
As a French and German speaker she is also actively involved in Beale and Company's European Network of lawyers.
