Midlands law firm Lodders has recruited construction law specialist Paul Wilson as a partner.
Wilson’s appointment and construction sector and law expertise adds a new specialism to Lodders portfolio. He will work closely with the firm’s commercial property team, dispute resolution team, and the real estate practice generally.
He has worked for several of the UK’s and Midlands’ leading law firms over the last 20 years, joining Lodders from Birmingham firm Tyndallwoods Solicitors. Previously, Wilson was a construction partner at Morgan Cole – now Blake Morgan - in Oxford, after spending the early part of his career at Eversheds in Birmingham.
Wilson specialises in contentious and non-contentious construction and engineering law and has extensive experience advising and acting on behalf of lenders, developers, main contractors, specialist sub-contractors, educational establishments, professional service providers, high net worth individuals and investors, alongside his niche expertise in party wall disputes.
He will be based at Lodders’ Stratford upon Avon office and work across the firm’s Midlands and South West office network.
Lodders’ managing partner Paul Mourton, who is head of the firm’s real estate team, said: “Paul’s arrival completes the range of services within our real estate offering, as we have been looking for a construction expert for the past few years. Lodders’ depth of commercial property expertise is exceptional for a regional, non-City firm, and is now supported by construction expertise that complements our existing and unrivalled planning, highways and rights of way specialisms.
“Not only does Paul’s appointment represent the addition of another pedigree lawyer to our heavyweight real estate practice, but his expertise enhances our development and investment specialism.”
