Ward Hadaway partner Karen Andrews has helped secure a mandate advising on a £350m schools project two months after arriving at the firm.
The firm has been selected by Bedford Borough Council to provide all legal advice on its multimillion-pound Building Schools for the Future (BSF) programme, which will see the creation of seven secondary schools.
Public sector partner Andrews, who arrived from Trowers & Hamlins in March and is based in Ward Hadaway’s Leeds office, is leading the team working on the scheme, which also includes associate Paul Hopkinson.
Andrews said: “I think this is a great testament to the team and the fact that we’re no longer just a North East firm. This is a national appointment and is in particular a significant one for our Leeds office.”
Ward Hadaway last year worked on BSF projects totalling around £700m, including a project with Nottingham City Council.
Bedford Borough Council is due to submit plans for Government approval by the autumn.
