Bryan Cave Leighton Paisner Continues Expansion of Litigation and Investigations Department with Leading Partner Hire

January 11, 2021

International law firm Bryan Cave Leighton Paisner (BCLP) continues the expansion of its Litigation & Investigations Department by welcoming Partner Shy Jackson to the Construction Disputes Team. Jackson will be resident in BCLP’s London office.

Jackson’s appointment follows the arrival of Sarah Klein to the department on Jan. 4.   

A highly experienced contentious construction lawyer, Jackson joins BCLP from Pinsent Masons, where he acted mostly for major contractors with a practice focused on project support and dispute resolution for large infrastructure projects. He is a member of the NEC Contract Board and a visiting lecturer at King’s College London and the University of Stuttgart.

BCLP European Leader for Litigation & Investigations Nathan Willmott said: “The addition of Shy to our Constructions Disputes Team is significant for the department and aligns, more broadly, with BCLP’s Project Advance strategy. Shy’s excellent reputation and particular expertise will allow us to expand existing and new client relationships, and further develop business in this space. Shy and Sarah’s appointments are a strong start to 2021 and we will continue to look for growth opportunities.”  

On joining BCLP, Jackson said: “I am delighted to be joining BCLP at the start of an important and exciting year as the firm continues its progress under Project Advance. I look forward to being part of the well-respected Construction Disputes Team and providing clients with a dedicated and quality representation.”  

The appointments of Jackson and Klein follow a number of high-profile hires for the department in 2020, including London Data Privacy Partner Geraldine Scali, Litigation Partner Lori Van Auken in New York, and Partner Amy de La Lama in Boulder who leads the global Data Privacy & Cyber Security Team. These continued efforts to recruit top lateral candidates support BCLP’s international growth plans under its new Project Advance strategic plan and growth initiative.
