BTO makes senior appointment to construction team

Chairman David Gibson with Fraser Hopkins

BTO Solicitors LLP has appointed new partner Fraser Hopkins to its construction team.

Described by BTO as a specialist in risk and construction disputes, Fraser has experience in working on projects across the UK for a mix of contractors, developers and construction professionals. He will co-lead the commercial side of BTO’s construction caseload alongside partner Jilly Petrie.

Fraser is the fifth new partner to be recruited by BTO this year, in addition to two internal partner promotions.

BTO chairman David Gibson said, “I am delighted that Fraser has joined us. He brings real specialist expertise in dispute avoidance and dispute resolution and a passion for construction projects which our clients will value greatly. Fraser’s appointment forms part of the general development and refocus of our wider construction team, involving both contentious and non-contentious lawyers. We are always keen to attract new talent and we are also actively recruiting for a non-contentious construction lawyer to slot into our team.”

Fraser added, “I look forward to working with this driven and enthusiastic group to further advance BTO’s construction offering and support our clients across the UK.”
