Brabners hires new Liverpool construction head

Brabners Chaffe Street is developing its Liverpool construction team with the hire of a solicitor from Hammonds’ Manchester office.

Ian Hardman joins Brabners as a partner and head of the Liverpool construction department, which now has five lawyers. His experience ranges from commercial developments to nuclear decommissioning projects, and includes dispute resolution experience.

Hardman will be working to develop the construction practice within Brabners, which works closely with the property department. He said he will be looking to attract new clients, particularly in the engineering sector.
