Contact Andreas Malekos
I am a paralegal in the construction and engineering group at Clarkslegal LLP, based in the London office. Prior to joining the firm, I worked in-house within a global multidisciplinary built asset design and facilities consultancy firm providing legal advice.
I specialise in contentious and non-contentious construction law. Working in-house has allowed me to work closely with engineers and construction professionals and I have come to grasp their perspectives and needs first hand. I believe that forging relationships with my clients and combining their technical knowledge with my legal and commercial expertise allows me to give the best possible advice.
I have drafted, reviewed and negotiated on behalf of construction professionals to reduce their exposure to risk when entering complex contractual arrangements with other parties on national and international projects.
I have advised on a broad range of professional services agreements and consultancy contracts and frameworks based on client bespoke forms and similar industry standard forms (JCT, NEC, ACE), parent company guarantees, collateral warranties, novations and contractual arrangements.
My key priority is to achieve the best possible outcome for my client without involving litigation. I have experience in assisting solicitors in advising clients such as engineers, contractors, sub-contractors, funders, purchasers, and other commercial organisations in bringing or defending claims (including adjudication).
