Campbell Hooper has taken on former Taylor Woodrow solicitor Bill Bidder to head the firms House Builder Group. Bidder was head of legal at one of the companys subsidiaries Taywood Homes, as well as being a board member and legal director of Taylor Woodrow Developments. Hooper, who joins the firm on 14 April, takes over from former group head Stephen Siddall, who will become a consultant as of 1 July.
