DLA wins Pinsents’ waste specialist

DLA is continuing its attack on the projects and PFI market with the hire of partner Allison Page from Pinsent Masons.

Page has been a partner in Pinsent Masons’ Leeds office since 2002, specialising in waste management. She joins DLA today (28 February).

Among her key instructions while at Pinsent Masons, Page advised Lancashire County Council on the biggest waste project currently being undertaken.

At DLA, Page will work alongside partners John Chandler and Peter Rout to expand the firm’s waste offering.

DLA has accelerated its move into the PFI and project finance market with a raft of new hires across Europe and the UK.

Pinsent Masons head of projects Barry Masons said: “We have more experience in waste PFI than any other team. We still have a very substantial waste department. We wish Allison well.”
