BDB Pitmans’ planning, infrastructure and public law department further expands with Eversheds Sutherland hire
Richard re-joins the team from Eversheds Sutherland to further strengthen the team’s standing as a market leader in this area of work.
Richard specialises in infrastructure projects, urban regeneration schemes and major commercial and housing developments. His appointment brings the number of people in the team to 60 and follows various other appointments in recent months including, at partner level, James Ross, who joined the team in July from DAC Beachcroft. The team also recently recruited lawyers from DLA Piper, Russell-Cooke, HB Law and IBB as well as promoting into the team from the firm’s trainee programme. Laura Thornton has been promoted to Legal Director, one of a number of promotions in the team this year.
Mark Challis, head of the planning, infrastructure and public law team, comments:
‘I am delighted that Richard is returning to the team. We know from his time with us that he is a first class lawyer with very substantial experience in both major infrastructure consenting and town and country planning. Richard, together with our other recent and forthcoming recruits, will all have their part to play in continuing to grow these core areas of our practice, advising on a wide range of cases including some of the largest nationally significant projects in the country today’.
Richard Marsh comments:
‘This is an exciting move for me. The firm has a really impressive offering in the market and I am looking forward to working again with the team on some of the most challenging and interesting projects around and helping it to go from strength to strength.’
Andrew Smith, managing partner of BDB Pitmans comments:
‘It is a pleasure to welcome Richard back to the firm as we continue to invest in strategic hires and strengthen our planning, infrastructure and public law team in line with increasing client demand across the country for this key service offering.’
