KHQ Lawyers has recruited a leading construction law practitioner to lead its construction team.

Catherine Bell has joined KHQ Lawyers as a principal solicitor, adding to the boutique firm more than two decades’ experience in construction and infrastructure law at top- and mid-tier firms. 

Bell made her latest move from Colin Biggers & Paisley, where she was a partner. She was also previously partner at Cornwall Stodart and special counsel at Holding Redlich and legacy Herbert Geer.

Advising on a wide range of projects and contentious matters, the new principal solicitor acts for principals, consultants, project managers, contractors, superintendents, and specialist subcontractors. She is experienced in litigation, arbitration, alternative dispute resolution, as well as project delivery, contract drafting and administration, and contract risks.

Bell said that she is looking forward to working closely with the firm’s clients, as well as her colleagues.

“Catherine’s appointment is a crucial element in the strategic development of our key service offering to our clients,” said David Kelly, KHQ Lawyers managing director.

Bell is an “exceptional operator,” he said.
