Top 200 corporate law firm, Shulmans LLP, has bolstered its offering with the appointment of a new partner to head up its construction team.

Sarah Wilson joins Leeds-based Shulmans as head of construction from Watson Burton LLP where she was a partner for eleven years.

Her expertise spans a range of sectors – including chemical works, energy, utilities, waste and house-building.

As a Legal 500 recommended lawyer and member of the Chartered Institute of Arbitrators, she has an impressive track record in dispute resolution. Also, she regularly provides external training and delivers workshops and seminars on construction-related matters.

Tim Halstead, managing partner at Shulmans, said: “We are delighted to welcome Sarah to our award-winning real estate team. Her experience and profile in the construction and engineering sectors will provide even greater support to our ever-growing client base.”

Commenting on her new appointment, Wilson added: “Shulmans has an enviable reputation, with year on year growth and an impressive portfolio of regional, national and international clients. The culture of the firm and its approach to recognising and nurturing talent really resonated with me and I look forward to helping shape and grow the team further.”
