Haddleton Legal recruits commercial and construction specialist

Haddleton Legal has added specialist commercial and construction lawyer Bob Crampton to its team.

Crampton has previously worked in-house within the building services, engineering and energy sectors. He will provide strategic, governance and technical support to Haddleton Legal’s clients in these fields.

James Haddleton said: “Bob is a talented commercial lawyer with a huge amount of experience in the construction and engineering sectors, and his understanding of business priorities and processes makes him a real asset to developers, contractors, funders and consultants.”

“Almost all of our lawyers have worked in-house with large organisations and therefore have a solid grasp of the everyday commercial realities faced by businesses.”

Crampton said: “Clients look to me for transactional and dispute resolution advice and commercial expertise during large and small-scale construction and infrastructure projects.”

“Construction funding often depends on having contracts in place at the start of a project these days, so I tend to be involved very early in the process to help with contract negotiation and procurement strategy.”

He added: “I am delighted to be working alongside Haddleton Legal’s other senior commercial lawyers as part of a highly knowledgeable team.”
