Russell-Cooke appoints construction partner in real estate team 

Published on: 6 Mar 2023

Pippa Beesley  [square]Law firm Russell-Cooke has appointed Pippa Beesley as construction partner in its multi-disciplinary real estate team.

Beesley will work within the cross-practice real estate team which includes specialists in planning, real estate investment, corporate transactions, and development and construction.

She specialises in acting for developers in both the private and public sector, with a particular focus on mixed-use development and urban regeneration schemes.

Beesley said: “With economic headwinds creating real challenges for the industry alongside issues ranging from supply chain disruption to construction skills shortages, the risk of delay and dispute runs high. Investors and developers are rightly focused on securing value from existing projects, while a continued lack of supply alongside evolving environmental and other ESG requirements will see a sustained focus on retro-fitting existing assets. In this environment having watertight contractual surety and security has never been more important, and I am excited to begin working with the wider team at Russell-Cooke, helping our clients to navigate these issues and deliver value through development.”
