Friendly, approachable and known by clients for calling a spade a spade, we will take the time to listen and understand your requirements and give you clear, simple advice without using jargon or over-complicating matters.
“Not only has Sayers Commercial regularly provided us with valued expert commercial assistance, they have also successfully negotiated on our behalf in a number of disputes, obtaining payments we thought we would never see.” Mark Clements, Managing Director 345 Interiors Ltd.
Who we are
Dean commenced his career as a Trainee Quantity Surveyor with Mowlem, after which he joined Wates as a Quantity Surveyor. During this period he was involved with several high value new build and refurbishment projects. He was subsequently engaged by a number of subcontractors in the new build sector, before commencing work as a Commercial Manager in the fast track fit-out sector.
Over time he became more heavily involved in the management of disputes on behalf of both main contractors and subcontractors, which culminated in the founding of Sayers Commercial Limited. He has a Master’s Degree in Construction Law & Dispute Resolution, a Diploma in International Commercial Arbitration and a Diploma in Adjudication. He is a Fellow of the Chartered Institute of Arbitrators (FCIArb), a Freeman of the Worshipful Company of Arbitrators, Regional Liaison Officer on the Executive Committee of the Adjudication Society, Regional Convenor on the London/South East Committee of the Adjudication Society, a Member of the Adjudication Society and a Member of the Society of Construction Law. He also sits as Arbitrator and Adjudicator, and is included in the Chartered Institute of Arbitrators (CIArb) Panel of Construction Adjudicators, the Construction Industry Council (CIC) Register of Adjudicators and UK Adjudicators (UKA) Panel of Adjudicators.
Extremely capable and innovative, Dean has extensive experience of the commercial and legal aspects of the construction industry.
He is proficient in all matters from the most basic aspects of quantity surveying and commercial management through to solving the most complex legal and commercial disputes; something which his track record in the industry supports.
Dean plays cricket and golf in his spare time, and likes watching football when he can. A real animal lover, he also enjoys travelling the world (often with his beloved Barmy Army).
