Partner hire boosts Shulmans’ construction team

We are pleased to announce that we have appointed a new partner to head up our Construction team.

Sarah Wilson joins Shulmans with 11 years' experience as head of construction at Watson Burton LLP. She has over 20 years’ experience in the sector, advising in contentious and non-contentious matters for heavyweight projects on behalf of developers, contractors and consultants alike. 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, Sarah 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, our managing partner, said: “We are delighted to welcome Sarah to our 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. It was recently named Property Law Firm of the Year at the Yorkshire Property Industry Awards. 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.”
