Clyde & Co enhances infrastructure offering with new partner hire in Manchester

Global law firm Clyde & Co has today announced the arrival of Steve Cannon as a Partner in its Global Projects and Construction Group.

Steve's arrival further expands the firm's growing infrastructure offering. He joins the Manchester office on Monday 6 June, bringing a wealth of expertise and experience in construction and engineering dispute resolution. He joins the firm from Eversheds.

Cannon is a recognised leader in construction and engineering disputes with over 15 years' experience. He has expertise and experience in national and international markets including Manchester and the North West, the Middle East and Singapore. Steve specialises in complex international arbitration and cross border dispute resolution.

John Morris, Global Head the Projects and Construction Group said: "Steve is a valuable addition to our growing infrastructure offering and will significantly enhance our construction and engineering capabilities in the UK. With many of our contractor, developer and international investor clients increasingly looking at projects in the North West, Steve's appointment will further enhance our offering in the region.

Steve Cannon said: "I am delighted to be joining Clyde & Co and its market leading global construction practice. Locally, the North West continues to see significant construction opportunities and with ongoing infrastructure investment interest and the government's devolution agenda, Manchester will continue to be an exciting place to practice."

The firm's infrastructure group has seen significant growth in the past 12 months in the UK and globally. In June 2015, Clyde & Co's infrastructure practice was joined by market leaders Liam Buckley and Stelios Coutsavlis who strengthened the firm's real estate, projects and energy sector offerings and developed a new commercial real estate practice in Manchester.
