Trowers & Hamlins welcomes His Honour David Grant to growing litigation team
His Honour David Grant has joined international law firm Trowers & Hamlins' growing litigation team.
After retiring from the bench on 1st September 2017, David will work with the firm's litigation teams across all regions, having a particular focus on construction and property related disputes.
HH David Grant sat as the Judge of the Technology and Construction Court (TCC) in Birmingham from 2008 to 2017 and as such sat in the High Court & County Court, both in the TCC and in other specialist courts.
Anthony Yates, Partner and Head of Litigation commented:
"We welcome David to Trowers & Hamlins and to the team. This is a unique opportunity for our clients and our litigation teams across the whole business, to draw on the recent first-hand experience of judging specialist litigation cases in the TCC. David's input will help to give a deeper and unrivalled understanding of how cases have been adjudicated upon, and how future cases could be decided, which will greatly assist our overall approach to case management of ongoing construction disputes and high court litigation."
David's arrival follows recent expansion across the litigation team in Exeter with aviation expert Kathryn Insall, and construction litigation expert senior associate Oliver Williams.
HH David Grant added:
"I am delighted to have the opportunity to put the skills that I have accumulated over the number of years I have been sitting in the TCC to constructive and practical use, especially with a firm such as Trowers & Hamlins, with its strong national and international presence. I am looking forward to working with the teams across its various offices."
This announcement comes as part of the firm's growth strategy which saw a 33% annual growth in their core litigation team over the last financial year.
