Clarion has appointed Phil Morrison as head of its new construction team, marking the fourth partner to join the property practice.
Mr Morrison joins from Shulmans where he was head of construction for the last five years.
He will work closely with colleagues in commercial property and with the banking and finance team on development finance projects.
Martin Grange, partner and head of property at Clarion, said: “With the commercial property market in Yorkshire continuing to be very active, we are launching a new construction arm to extend our support to clients in this specialist area of law.
“One of Clarion’s key strengths is the way in which our specialist teams are able to draw on expertise from one another, and with Phil’s in-depth knowledge of construction law, we are confident that he will make a valuable contribution.”
Mr Morrison: “My aim is to provide clients with an excellent service that is in tune with their business and its needs.
“My approach is a great fit with the Clarion ethos – I try to add value to the client’s projects by becoming one of their team, working closely with them to help them achieve their goals.
“Working in a commercial services firm like Clarion will give me exposure to a wide range of business clients who expect and will receive quality advice.”
