Pinsent Curtis Biddle is losing two partners from its Leeds office
Jonathan Hawkswell is the firm's national head of construction and is leaving in a month to set up his own niche construction practice in Leeds. Hawkswell is part of the projects and commercial group, which is now gearing more towards PFI and projects work, said a source within the firm. His work spans both contentious and non-contentious aspects of construction. There are no current plans to replace him.
