Trowers brings in public sector expertise

Trowers & Hamlins has continued its recruitment drive with the lateral hire of Nabarro partner Karen Andrews to its public sector practice.

Andrews is the firm’s third UK lateral hire of 2008, following the recruitment of Martin ;McFall from ASB Law and Paul Flood from Reynolds Porter Chamberlain to its banking and finance and pensions teams.

Trowers senior partner Jonathan Adlington said Andrews, who appeared in The Lawyer’s Hot 100 list in 2007, would play a valuable role in the expansion of the public sector practice.

Andrews is well known for dealing with property issues in complex public sector projects. She joins Trowers’ Manchester office.
