Stuart Murphy - Partner
Stuart Murphy attained a degree in Law (LL.B. honours) from the University of Liverpool in 1989. Having trained with Mills & Reeve from 1990 to 1992, Stuart joined construction specialist firm Masons (now Pinsent Masons) and worked in their construction department in Bristol until 2007. In 2007 Stuart joined Carson McDowell, becoming a partner in 2010 and he heads up the firm’s construction and engineering team.
Stuart specialises in both non-contentious contract drafting and negotiating (and has extensive experience of the major industry standard forms such as NEC, JCT, ICC, FIDIC, RIBA, ACE and many others), as well as contentious construction disputes, regularly acting in adjudications, arbitrations and litigation in the High Court and above. Stuart’s experience includes not just construction projects in Northern Ireland, but major projects in SE Asia, Africa and throughout Europe.
In the Chambers and Partners UK 2017 Guide, clients describe him as an experienced practitioner, known to "understand the issue and be effective in delivering results." He is active in Northern Ireland and internationally, in both a contentious and non-contentious capacity.
