Hammonds construction team suffers further blow as Proctor quits for Addleshaws

Hammonds has lost yet another construction lawyer as its respected head of private finance initiatives (PFI) and public private partnerships (PPP), Nigel Proctor, leaves for Addleshaw Goddard.

Proctor, a partner in Hammonds’ Manchester office, will move to Addleshaws at the end of the financial year. His departure follows Friday’s announcement that Birmingham construction partners James Bessey and Mark Robinson are to go to Cobbetts.

For Addleshaws, the hire adds to the firm’s expertise in projects work. Proctor’s clients at Hammonds include United Utilities, Morgan Sindall, Apollo Healthcare, Barclays Private Equity, Mowlem, Manchester City Council and the Bank of Ireland. His practice is broad-based, encompassing a range of projects work from pure PFI to infrastructure.

Proctor said: “It’s a great opportunity to join a great team.”
