Chrissie Parkes

Telephone: 01206 593933
Working in partnership with contractors, contract managers and project managers.

Chrissie is a solicitor in Holmes & Hills' Legal 500 recommended Construction Division, who provides advice on construction contracts and construction contract disputes. Before qualifying, Chrissie spent two years working as a trainee solicitor alongside the firm's construction solicitors and is therefore well versed in Construction Law.

Chrissie works with contractors, sub-contractors, contract and project managers, quantity surveyors, and architects to ensure clients’ commercial interests are protected when entering, exiting, or disputing construction contracts in situations where:

  • Projects are delayed
  • Defective works are identified or argued
  • Payments are disputed
  • Adjudication claims are being issued, defended, or enforced
  • Drafting and amending contracts
  • Delivering training to clients

Chrissie has led numerous adjudications and enforcement proceedings whereby she successfully recovered monies owed to clients in a payment dispute. She offers down-to-earth legal advice that reflects the commercial realities of construction projects. As a result of her success, Chrissie has recently been seconded by a large contractor to attend its office one day per month and provide live advice on current and future projects.

Chrissie also carries out non-contentious work including:

  • Drafting bespoke contracts
  • Reviewing contracts prior to clients agreeing to the terms and explaining/advising on their contractual obligations in more digestible language
  • Alongside the Construction Division, providing training to clients in navigating Construction Law to protect their businesses

Chrissie is based at Holmes & Hills Solicitors' regional Head Office - the A12 Commercial Hub - in Colchester (Marks Tey).
