Construction specialist joins Brabners property team
Jennie Jones joins Brabners from Freeths and brings significant additional dispute resolution and transactional construction experience to the firm’s 95-strong property practice
Liverpool law firm Brabners has appointed a new partner to its property department.
Construction specialist Jennie Jones joins Brabners from Freeths and brings significant additional dispute resolution and transactional construction experience to the firm’s 95-strong property practice.
Jennie specialises in advising contractors, developers, design consultants and funders on both contentious and non-contentious issues, including contested accounts. She joins a team which has added 10 lawyers in the last two years.
Operating across the firm’s Liverpool, Manchester and Preston offices, Jennie will work alongside the firm’s construction lead, Barry Goodall, and real estate sector lead Andrew Waugh. The appointment comes as Brabners’ real estate team targets further growth having increased its practice revenue by 10% in the last year.
“While recent activity levels appear encouraging, a significant number of construction projects are being cancelled or delayed due to unreliable supply chains, workforce management challenges, and financial reserves being stretched to their limit.
“The construction team at Brabners has vast experience in advising clients on how to navigate through these testing times to emerge in a position of strength. The culture of the team and the wider firm means that it attracts lawyers who put clients at the heart of everything they do.”
And Brabners managing partner, Nik White, added: “The property sector has long been a strategic area of growth for us, particularly as the North West continues to deliver some of the UK’s most important infrastructure projects.”
