Walker Morris LLP

Walker Morris LLP‘s client base spans listed companies, local authorities, education providers, developers, contractors and consultants, which the team advises on contentious and non-contentious issues at a national and increasingly international level. Martin Scott leads the department and focuses on construction disputes, Tom Peel is active across the full spectrum of work, Jules Harbage handles energy projects, and senior associate Carly Thorpe is also a key name to note. Former director Joanne McNamara left in early 2018 for an in-house role at Home Group, but the team was subsequently boosted by the promotion of Paul Hargreaves and Dan Lyon to the partnership.
