Bethan Onions

I am a qualified construction solicitor. Until recently I was working in-house at the international consulting firm, Arup. After completing my Law and Human Rights degree at the University of Essex I moved to London to undertake the Bar Vocational Course at the Inns of Court School of Law (now City Law School). In 2011 I then cross-qualified as a solicitor and developed a practice covering both contentious and non-contentious matters. I have experience of negotiating different types of appointments from small consultancy commissions to major projects which involve complex joint venture arrangements. My contentious practice includes advising on all types of claims including fee and professional negligence claims.

In 2013 I completed the MSc in Construction Law and Dispute Resolution at Kings College London where my dissertation question was based on the use of Integrated Project Insurance and Building Information Modelling in order to encourage collaboration on projects.

I moved to Islamabad in Pakistan in November 2014 for a two year posting. Since arriving I have set up my own freelance legal company specialising in construction law.
