Mayer Brown nets FFW construction head

Mayer Brown is ploughing ahead with it expansion programme with the appointment of Field Fisher Waterhouse‘s construction head Chris Fellowes.

Fellowes’ move marks a return to the firm where he trained. He spent six years at legacy firm Rowe & Maw before leaving in 2001.

Fellowes will start in the New Year, transferring a practice focused on legal advice to property developers, real estate funds and contractors on construction projects.
