Gibson Sheat has admitted construction lawyer Helen Brown into its partnership effective 6 December 2021.

Brown will work alongside partners Edward Cox, Dahl Calder, Finn Collins, and Jared Holt to boost the firm’s litigation and construction teams.

She also has litigation experience in medico-legal, professional regulation, public law, and commercial dispute resolution, where she often advises both public and private sector clients. For “being a stand-out for contentious construction matters,” Brown was recognised by The Legal 500 as one of the leading lawyers in real estate and construction practice.

“While [Brown] brings a wealth of experience to Gibson Sheat, her passion for the law and delivering for her clients makes her a great fit for Gibson Sheat and our clients,” the firm said.

Previously, Brown served as a senior associate and special counsel in the construction and litigation practice groups at Kensington Swan, where she spent over 16 years.
