A transactional expert with particular expertise in development and engineering projects, Jahanara joins Fieldfisher's highly regarded UK construction practice to strengthen its capabilities in the north of England.

European law firm Fieldfisher is delighted to announce the appointment of Jahanara Hussain as a partner in its construction team in Manchester.

In addition to bespoke contracts, Jahanara regularly deals with standard form contracts including the full suite of NEC, IET, FIDIC, IChemE, JCT, ICE, ICC, PPC and Orgalime.

Jahanara joins Fieldfisher's 22-strong UK construction practice, which is spread across the firm's London and Manchester offices, and serves clients throughout the UK and internationally.

Jahanara joins Fieldfisher on 3 July.

Commenting on her appointment, Fieldfisher's Head of Construction and Projects Dan Preston said:

"Bringing Jahanara on board will significantly strengthen our construction capabilities in the north of England. We have been looking to grow our Manchester offering and Jahanara is a great strategic hire.

"The experience she brings in management contracting and construction management procurement is particularly welcome in light of recent trends and her track record of working on significant development and infrastructure projects adds significantly to our reputation as one of the UK's leading construction law practices.

"I and the rest of the team look forward to working closely with Jahanara."

Jahanara Hussain added:

"Joining Fieldfisher provides an excellent opportunity for me to further build my practice with the backing of a top construction team within a highly respected European law firm.
