Buckles Solicitors LLP

Buckles Solicitors LLP reinforced its credentials in the construction arena in early 2019 with the hire of senior associate Charles Jakeman from Browne Jacobson LLP; Jakeman is experienced in acting for clients on a regional, national and international basis. His expertise in construction projects spans areas such as education, health, leisure, housing and energy, among various others. The team was also strengthened by the arrival of Karen Sandhu, following the firm's acquisition of DCH Law in 2018. Practice head James Coppinger undertakes a mix of procurement and contentious matters.
