“We are delighted that Carly has joined the Team she has a wealth of experience in contentious construction matters and will be a valuable member of the Team.  We have seen a significant rise in demand for our services over the last couple of years, prompting our recruitment of a number of key lawyers.

“What stands the Walker Morris Construction & Engineering Team apart is that almost all our lawyers can advise on both contentious and non-contentious issues.  This dual skilled approach means that our clients benefit from the continuity in the team. Should a project unfortunately become litigious, the same team can advise and all the knowledge gained from the inception of the project is retained, enabling our team to ‘hit the ground running’.”
