Wilsons in Butterfly World launch

Wilsons has won the mandate to set up Butterfly World, a £25m butterfly dome near St Albans that will open this week.

Alison McKenna, the firm’s head of charities, who has this month been appointed to become the first president of the Charity Tribunal, handled the constitutional work with founder Clive Farrell to establish the charity, while the firm’s corporate team managed the structuring between the charitable and commercial side of the project.

Wilsons’ property team handled the acquisition of the site and negotiated for the construction of new roads.
