Harrison Clark Rickerbys has appointed partner Andrew Walker as its new head of property litigation, based in Cheltenham - he has led nationally recognised teams throughout his 30-year career in London and Birmingham.
A highly experienced litigator, he founded the property litigation team at CMS Cameron McKenna, and latterly has led Squire Patton Boggs' UK property litigation team.
Andrew will work with partners Andrew Cave and Joanne Carter and their team. Experienced in advising a range of clients including institutional investors, developers, banks, corporate and charity owners and occupiers of real estate on their property disputes, he is noted for being "commercially minded and client-focused," according to Chambers and Partners in its 2014 client guide to the UK legal market and the Legal 500 recognises his "excellent knowledge."
Richard Morgan, Harrison Clark Rickerbys' head of litigation, said: "Andrew's wealth of experience will add to our team's existing talents, and he will expand our capabilities even further. We are delighted to welcome him to the firm."
Andrew said: "I am joining a very skilled, flexible and commercially-responsive team and I look forward very much to working with them to extend the firm's reach."
"I am especially pleased to be able to enhance the firm's end-to-end property service, drawing on its skills in property transactions, litigation, construction and planning."
