Leading commercial litigator joins Clarion


We have added another partner to our growing team with the appointment of Paul Burkinshaw to the dispute resolution practice.

One of the region’s leading commercial litigators, Paul undertakes a broad range of commercial disputes and specialises in property and construction work. He joins from Last Cawthra Feather where he spent 10 years as head of its commercial litigation and construction team. Almost 20 years qualified, Paul has a wealth of experience of mediations, expert determinations and other forms of Alternative Dispute Resolution as well as pursuing matters via arbitration or the traditional courts route.

Paul works with developers, contractors, professional service providers, landlords and tenants in relation to disputed matters. His specialist areas of interest include construction adjudications and leasehold enfranchisements in addition to more general commercial and property disputes.

“Paul is an extremely experienced and very well regarded commercial litigator and will be a real asset to our team, helping us to further grow the dispute resolution practice and in particular Paul will spearhead the development of our property and construction litigation services,” commented Simon Young, partner and head of

Clarion’s dispute resolution team. Paul comments: “Clarion is a law firm that is going places - clients now want lawyers who understand their business in a broader sense as well as serving their immediate legal needs. With a relatively young partner profile, Clarion has evolved as a modern practice, able to meet the needs of today’s businesses by offering a full range of quality commercial services, delivered in a businesslike manner that clients can relate to.”
