May 23, 2023

The construction and engineering team at Bristol-headquartered national law firm Burges Salmon has appointed Katy Wall as a director.

Katy, pictured, joins Burges Salmon after 10 years at international law firm Bryan Cave Leighton Paisner, where she was a senior associate in its commercial construction & engineering team. 

Prior to that she spent just over three years as an in-house solicitor for engineering giant Siemens and has acted for both contractors and developers on major international infrastructure projects.

She specialises in commercial construction and engineering law, providing advice on procurement strategy and negotiation of standard form and bespoke construction and engineering contracts, service and supply agreements and associated development, funding and third-party arrangements.

Katy said: “Burges Salmon has a very well-regarded construction and engineering team, with both an impressive roster of clients and a wide range of highly experienced lawyers.

“I’m excited to be joining the team and am very much looking forward to working with our clients on a variety of nationally significant and complex construction projects.”

Burges Salmon head of construction and engineering Steven James added: “It’s great to be able to announce Katy’s appointment at the firm.

“She is a hugely experienced construction sector lawyer and we’re all excited about adding her expertise to our offering, which will enable us to continue providing our clients with an excellent UK-wide service.”

Burges Salmon has one of the largest construction and engineering teams in the country, with more than 35 specialist construction lawyers.

The team works with clients at every level of their development and delivery of complex infrastructure including all forms of construction dispute resolution.

It spans the UK, with lawyers qualified in England, Wales, Northern Ireland and Scotland and it also advises on international projects including projects in Europe, the Americas, Africa and Asia.

Burges Salmon employs around 1,000 people in its Bristol HQ and London and Edinburgh offices.
