Charlotte Waters 

Partner

Charlotte Waters specialises in construction, engineering and manufacturing disputes and disasters.

Charlotte is an accredited Mediator and is a Solicitor-Advocate with full Higher Rights of Audience in all courts in all proceedings.

Charlotte specialises in major incident response following construction and engineering disasters and complex major property damage claims arising out of construction and design defects, fire, flood, theft, impact and subsidence.

She firmly believes that the secret of success is to get the facts right above all else. Many cases are lost because lawyers either confuse fact with assumption or are insufficiently equipped when working with complex technical evidence to examine it with the necessary rigor.
