A new partner has been appointed to a leading Warwickshire law firm, expanding construction and engineering team.
Steven Hayward has joined Leamington-based Wright Hassall after almost three years as Partner at IBB Law in West London.
A move to Wright Hassall marks a return home to the region for Steven, who was born and raised in Coventry.
Steven is an experienced construction and engineering law specialist who has worked with a broad spectrum of clients in various sectors, and principally advises clients in relation to disputes that arise during and after projects.
He will join Wright Hassall’s construction and engineering division, which advises on the construction and engineering aspects of transactions and the preparing of necessary contracts, appointments and security documents, and the resolution of disputes by various methods including adjudication, mediation, arbitration, and court proceedings.
Steven said: “I am delighted to have joined Wright Hassall and to be part of its well-recognised and established team. I very much look forward to contributing to the continued growth of the team and providing excellent service to our clients.”
Partner and Head of Construction Michael Hiscock added: “I am really pleased to be increasing the capacity within our team, and adding to our strengths with someone of Steven’s experience and skills.
“He not only brings with him a tremendous amount of commitment to the local area and a new dynamic, but he also brings more than 13 years’ experience of construction law and superb connections across the Thames Valley.
“His expertise in resolving claims and disputes will be of particular importance to our clients in a world where business is getting tougher.”
Wright Hassall is top ranked in both the Legal 500 and Chambers UK. It operates nationally but is based on Olympus Avenue in Leamington Spa.
