Building a reputation in construction

Have your say

WHEN it comes to providing advise on construction issues a trio of Leeds lawyers lead the way, but Sheffield firms DLA Piper and Nabarro are among those snapping at their heels.

Martin McKervey, who heads Nabarro’s practice is praised for his strong understanding of the sector and for being ‘an excellent ambassador for the industry and Sheffield.’”

Recent work involving Nabarro’s, highlighted by the Legal 500 includes representing outsourcing specialist Amey in a case relating to the £400 million Bradford Building Schools for the Future programme.

DLA Piper is praised by clients for being a ‘very professional and client-friendly organisation’ and its construction team is described as ‘knowledgeable, professional and good at negotiation.’

The team was recently appointed to Asda’s panel, and subsequently advised it on construction and real estate issues relating to a new chilled distribution centre being developed for the supermarket group in the North West.

It also acted for Sheffield Hallam University on its Heart of the Campus scheme at the University’ Collegiate Crescent site.
