Boodle Hatfield strengthens Construction team with partner appointment

Law firm Boodle Hatfield has strengthened its Construction team with the appointment of Partner John Wevill.

John joined the firm on 17 October from Clarkslegal, where he was a partner in its London office. He was previously a senior associate at DWF and in-house counsel at Laing O’Rourke.

He brings to the firm more than 15-years’ experience of advising on high profile and big ticket construction projects, acting for developers, contractors, lenders, professional consultants and insurers. John also has extensive contentious experience, including arbitrations, adjudications and mediations.

Schemes on which John has advised include Qatar 2022, the redevelopment of Quadrant 1, Regent Street, the redevelopment of Lambeth College at Nine Elms, the development of Bath SouthGate, the Royal Opera House Open Up project and Cambridge Judge Business School.

On joining Boodle Hatfield John said:

“Boodle Hatfield’s Property and Construction team has an excellent reputation and an enviable client following. The firm is advising on some of the most exciting schemes in London and across the UK. I am thrilled to be joining the firm and look forward to developing my career further.”

David Johnson, former Partner and Head of Construction at Boodle Hatfield said:

“We are delighted to have John join the team. He has a first class track record and will be a real asset to the firm and our clients.”

Boodle Hatfield’s construction team has advised on the conversion of a grade II listed Art Deco building in Mayfair into a boutique hotel containing a unique habitable sculpture by Antony Gormley, the construction and fit-out of one of the largest new country houses built in Britain since the second world war, a large mixed use development comprising two high rise towers, and the refurbishment of 8 Fenchurch Place. The team advises Grosvenor on construction documentation for a number of office, retail and leisure developments.
