Partner - Harrison Clark Rickerbys
With a wealth of experience over more than 30 years in every aspect of construction law, partner Keith Blizzard joined Harrison Clark Rickerbys at the start of 2017.
As well as being a highly experienced construction expert accustomed to dealing with contentious issues, Keith is a chartered quantity surveyor, chartered construction manager, chartered arbitrator, panel adjudicator, accredited and panel mediator, accredited dispute board member, forensic surveyor and experienced lecturer.
His expertise in adjudication and arbitration have led him to be not only in demand in those roles but also to become a visiting lecturer at universities, including in Helsinki, Sheffield and Birmingham, and at conferences at home and abroad, as well as tutoring post-graduates acquiring professional qualifications.
Because he has considerable experience of the whole construction process, he is able to help clients to avoid disputes before, during and following work on-site and can help to resolve any problems that arise to make sure that their commercial interests are protected as well as ensuring that they do not compromise their position by their own actions. Keith’s abilities in this area have been recognised and he is an RICS Accredited Dispute Board Member.
Although his background is in construction, his mediation experience has covered disputes of all kinds including landlord and tenant, insurance policy claims, commercial industrial and partnership.
