Burges Salmon poaches Bevan Brittan waste projects partner

Bristol’s Burges Salmon has bagged waste projects partner Nigel Campbell from local rival Bevan Brittan.

Campbell joins Burges Salmon as a consultant, leaving Bevan Brittan after eight years as a partner. He has experience in PFI and PPP waste projects, including advising contractors, technology providers, funders and local authorities.

Ross Fairley, co-head of Burges Salmon’s environmental law unit and head of the renewable energy and waste projects team, said: “Projects in the waste sector are often more complex in nature than those in other sectors due to the pace of legislative change and government policy, and Nigel’s expertise of dealing with the issues and problems will complement the team.”

The hire for Burges Salmon follows the announcement that the firm will lose its sole dedicated corporate restructuring partner Peter Carney, who leaves the firm for local rival TLT Solicitors at the beginning of October (The Lawyer, 22 July).
