Hughes Paddison expands its litigation team

Leading Gloucestershire law firm, Hughes Paddison, has recruited Andrew Turner to boost the company’s litigation team.

Andrew, who lives in Cheltenham, has spent the past 7 years as Senior Associate in the Property Litigation team at Harrison Clark Rickerbys. He brings with him a wealth of experience in disputes relating to commercial, residential and agricultural property, as well as in disputes arising in the broader litigation field.

Andrew is a member of the Property Litigation Association, and the Association of Contentious Trust and Probate Specialists, and has considerable experience of dealing with Trustees of Land and Appointment of Trustees Act applications and Inheritance Act claims. 

Andrew has managed cases up to the Court of Appeal and the Supreme Court. He also regularly advises clients in relation to Land Registry adjudication proceedings and applications to the Lands Chamber.

In his new role, Andrew will be advising on a wide range of topics including landlord and tenant disputes, 1954 Act lease renewals, dilapidations, possession claims, and the enforcement of covenants.

Rachel Stewart, Head of the Litigation Department, says “It’s fantastic to have Andrew on board. He is a leading light in the field of property litigation, which will enable us to offer a more specialist service to our property clients.  Our property client base has expanded enormously over the past 2 years, following Paul Engelbrecht joining our partnership, and Andrew will work with our clients to offer a comprehensive answer to all their property needs”.

Speaking about his move, Andrew said “Hughes Paddison has an excellent reputation, both as a firm generally and for their litigation work, and I’m very excited to be joining the litigation team. I’m looking forward to using my specialist knowledge and experience to help our clients, and to providing the high level of service Hughes Paddison is known for.”
