Trowers & Hamlins bolsters London construction litigation team
International law firm Trowers & Hamlins has recruited partner Louise Elmes into its construction litigation team. She is based at the firm's head office in London.
Louise joins from Fieldfisher where she was lead of the contentious construction group and acted as Deputy Head of Construction.
Louise has over 16 years' experience and specialises in contentious construction, construction-related professional negligence and contentious shipbuilding. She is recommended by the Legal 500 UK for contentious construction and professional negligence.
She advises clients, including developers, funders, asset managers, occupiers, high net worth individuals and contractors, across the construction, real estate, energy, hospitality, transport and infrastructure and maritime sectors.
Trowers' head of litigation and contentious construction, Anthony Yates commented on Louise's arrival at the firm:
"We are delighted to welcome Louise to the 22-strong construction litigation team. Louise is highly regarded throughout the industry and particularly noted for her outstanding technical ability, tactical acumen, calm approach and judgment beyond her years. This appointment continues the strategic growth of our litigation team across the firm, ameliorating our drive to take an integrated, collaborative approach across all offices, sectors and areas of expertise. We are confident that Louise's experience and sector track record will strengthen our UK and international construction practice and expertise."
“It is a pleasure to join such a highly regarded, collaborative, ambitious, forward-thinking and growing construction team. The UK construction team includes 8 contentious construction partners and 11 non-contentious construction partners across the London, Manchester, Birmingham and Exeter offices, offering a wealth of experience and expertise across all sectors of the construction industry. I look forward to developing new relationships in conjunction with my colleagues.”
