Bevan Brittan's growth within Leeds continues with another senior appointment.

Non-contentious Construction lawyer Niamh Batterton has joined the firm’s Leeds office from Addleshaw Goddard as a Legal Director.

Her addition boosts the strength and depth of Bevan Brittan’s construction and real estate offering in Leeds.

The positive news follows a number of recent senior leadership changes within the UK-Top 100 law firm’s Leeds office with the appointment of Property Partner James Atkins as its new Leeds office head and the promotion of Clinical Risk colleague Susan Trigg to Partner as part of its latest promotions round

This comes after further expansion to Bevan Brittan’s Leeds team earlier in the year with Pensions Partner Nigel Bolton joining the firm’s growing Employment, Pensions & Immigration practice from Freeths in January.

Niamh acts for a range of clients including universities, local authorities, housing associations, developers, employers, tenants and funders. Niamh’s developmental experience includes higher education facilities, commercial and retail units, residential, build to rent and infrastructure projects.

Bevan Brittan’s Head of Construction, Andrew Tobin, welcomed Niamh to the team:

“Niamh is an excellent addition to our team, which is growing both regionally and nationally and is testament to the quality of our work that we can attract candidates of Niamh’s calibre. 

“We are very much looking forward to working with Niamh as we continue to grow our practice, including working with directly with developers and with housing, higher education, local government and healthcare clients.”

James Atkins, Partner and Head of Bevan Brittan’s Leeds office, said:

“We are thrilled to welcome Niamh to Bevan Brittan. Within the Leeds office we now have over 60 colleagues working with businesses and organisation across Yorkshire and further afield. Niamh has an excellent reputation and I look forward to working with her as we continue to expand our real estate and construction offering in the region.”
