The construction team in our Birmingham office has welcomed new partner, Ian Griffiths.

Joining the firm from Horizon Nuclear Power, Ian has an impressive understanding of large infrastructure projects and nuclear law. Additionally he has a range of energy experience from working on multiple energy generation, utilities and biofuel schemes.

Ian’s expertise in the energy, utilities and engineering sectors will allow him to give tailored advice to clients on what can be highly complex topics, hugely benefitting the construction team. His areas of focus include infrastructure and other project contracts and procurement.

On top of this, Ian is also an advisory panel member to the Institution of Civil Engineers, a legal consultant to the New Engineering Contract and a member of the International Nuclear Law Association.

Alex Smith, partner and head of our construction, said:

“Bringing over 20 years’ experience with him, Ian’s specialist knowledge of the energy sector will perfectly complement the wider team’s expertise, helping to further broaden our client base.

“Our track record speaks for itself. We go beyond pure contract drafting to cover strategic advice and risk management, putting our clients’ individual commercial interests first. Having Ian on board will reinforce the link between the energy and construction teams, helping us and our clients achieve even bigger and better things going forward.”

Ian Griffiths, said:

“Shakespeare Martineau is a firm that “gets” the energy industry. They have a reputation in the sector for providing quality regulatory, commercial, property and corporate support to energy clients and are ambitious to expand energy infrastructure capability. It is a great place to be as the country faces up to the challenge of net zero carbon by 2050.”
