With almost 30-years’ experience under his belt, Paul is highly regarded within the industry, having been praised by the Legal 500 for his “excellent knowledge of construction contracts and disputes”, as well as being recognised by Chambers & Partners for his “practical client-focused approach”.

Paul is well versed in dealing with both contentious and non-contentious matters, acting on behalf of both public and private sector clients.

“I’m delighted to join Aaron & Partners and look forward to playing a leading role in developing this specialist area of law for the firm,” said Paul.

I’m pleased to bring my experience of construction and engineering to the team, which will enable us to offer the best legal advice and counsel to even more clients across the country.”

His extensive industry experience will see him play a leading role in managing the resolution of construction disputes, including adjudication, court proceedings and arbitration. This will be in addition to preparing and advising on construction and engineering project documentation, drafting development agreements and undertaking due diligence.

David Harries, team head, said: “We’re delighted to welcome Paul to the firm. He brings a wealth of specialist construction knowledge and has a great reputation in the industry.

“There is a specific and growing need for specialists in this area of law, and Paul’s in-depth skills and vast knowledge will help strengthen the services and support we can offer.
