Berrymans recruit new health and safety head

Berrymans Lace Mawer has hired a partner in Manchester to head up its health and safety team.

Chris Green joined Berrymans last week (11 October) from Hammonds, where he was a senior solicitor.

Green defends and prosecutes cases involving breaches of health and safety and environmental laws. Recently he has advised construction companies on fatal accident prosecutions as well as having prosecuted regulatory offences for Birmingham City Council.

Partner Vivienne Williams said Green’s appointment would enable Berrymans to further develop the firm’s health and safety unit.
