Construction specialist strengthens services at top law firm

Top 200 legal practice Aaron & Partners has strengthened its services by appointing a senior construction expert.

Phil Caton joins as a Senior Associate Solicitor, specialising in construction law. Phil is highly experienced in both contentious and non-contentious work but has a particular focus on transactional law, including drafting and negotiating contracts, drafting development agreements and offering advice on bespoke forms and building standards.

His in-depth knowledge of the sector and understanding of the complexities of construction law has also put Phil in good stead to manage the resolution of a range of construction disputes, including breach of contracts and adjudication.

“Aaron & Partners is a highly regarded firm in the North West and it’s fantastic to be able to bring a new set of skills to such a great team.” said Phil.

“Now, more than ever, it is vital that businesses have access to expert legal advice.

“Coronavirus has had a significant impact on all aspects of business, perhaps especially within the construction sector, and my role has never been more crucial. Whether companies require advice on breach of contracts or management of dispute resolution, it is vital that they know we can provide the expert support they need during these challenging times.”

David Harries, Partner and Phil’s team leader said: “Phil is a tremendous addition to the firm and his wealth of specialist construction knowledge will be a huge asset to us and to our clients, especially during the current crisis”.
