We’re delighted to announce the latest recruits to Team Archor.
Most recently, Sophie Bennett has joined us as a paralegal. Sophie has experience of paralegal work in the construction team of an international law firm so she will be a real boost to our already excellent paralegal team.
In March, Sarah Lester arrived as our first Senior Associate. Sarah has a wealth of experience in the construction sector having worked at a large main contractor for around 15 years before joining the dark side of private practice. She specialises in non-contentious construction law where from her previous in-house role she has experience of advising on risk management, insurances, bonds, PCGs, sub-contracts and main contract negotiation, as well as advising on contentious matters and assisting with claims and adjudications.
Shortly before Sarah, Jessica Housego joined us as our first Trainee Solicitor at the start of March. Jessica previously worked with the Archor partners as a paralegal so she already has plenty of experience of construction law (and of the partners’ various demanding needs!).
And our first new joiner of 2022 was Hayley Morgan. Hayley joined us from a local authority, where she gained experience of disputes and development work. Before that she worked at a well-known construction consultancy where she was involved with project support and documentation, becoming familiar with construction standard forms and procurement structures. She also undertook a Master’s degree in Alternative Dispute Resolution, and is a qualified mediator with the Society of Mediators.
We are very pleased, and very lucky, to be able to welcome all four to Team Archor and excited to see their careers develop with us. The firm is considerably stronger for having them, and we hope you as clients and contacts will enjoy working with them as much as we do.
