UK regeneration expert to join Trowers & Hamlins

Trowers & Hamlins, international law firm, has announced the appointment of regeneration expert Chris Plumley as a Partner in the Public Sector Commercial Team based in Birmingham.

Prior to joining the firm Chris was a lead partner in the local government practice at Anthony Collins Solicitors specialising in public sector property development and regeneration projects.

An active and well-known figure in the sector, he is a passionate advocate for, and ‘unlocker’ of, complex urban renewal projects, having earned the trust of a large number of local authority Chief Executives over his many years of service in the public sector.

Speaking about the move, Chris said: “Building new places for people to live and work is surely one of the most exciting parts of working hand-in-glove with local authorities and other public bodies. Whether we call it place shaping, urban renewal or regeneration; making a difference to the built environment has been at the heart of my career for many years. I am delighted to be able to bring my extensive network and track record to the already strong team at Trowers & Hamlins.

James Hawkins, Partner and Head of Public Sector Commercial at Trowers & Hamlins, commented: "Chris has built a strong reputation among key players in public authority-led urban regeneration projects. His experience and expertise has helped bring forward many high-profile projects with his genuine care for the communities in which he works. Chris is a great fit for Trowers & Hamlins both in terms of helping us to grow our business in the Midlands but also in terms of our culture and client base.

Amardeep Gill, Head of the Birmingham office, went on to say: “As we continue to build our business in Birmingham, this significant appointment demonstrates our commitment to being part of the growth and development of the Midlands. With the rise of the regions in the UK and the importance of the Midlands Engine in the UK economy, we want to be fully equipped to help deliver large urban projects across the UK, Christopher will be instrumental in helping us do just that.
