Galbraith joins Muckle’s Newcastle team

The law team has brought in Ross Galbraith as a partner in its construction team as it looks to grow its presence in the North East market.

Hailing from Darlington, Galbraith has nearly 10 years’ experience and specialises in non-contentious and engineering law.

He has acted for a range of developers, funds, contractors and sub-contractors.

Muckle’s construction team is ranked by both Legal 500 UK and Chambers & Partners.

Before joining Muckle, Galbraith spent more than seven years with DLA Piper in Yorkshire, and more recently worked for boutique construction law firm Hawkswell Kilvington.

He said: “I’m extremely excited to be back in my home town, working for a well-established firm like Muckle. What drew me to Muckle was its size, location and the opportunity to contribute to the team’s growth and success.

“I have acted for various large developers including residential, commercial, and mixed-use developments. I’m looking forward to getting stuck into more complex matters and working alongside an ambitious team.”

Adam Aston, partner and head of construction, said: “It’s great to be welcoming Ross to our team and he brings with him a wealth of construction expertise. As we strive to expand our offering and maintain excellent levels of services, Ross’s experience and positive approach add a valuable dimension to our capabilities.

“This is a really exciting time for the team as we look to cement our reputation in Newcastle and seek to grow our presence across Tees Valley. Ross’ experience really fits our aspirations for growth in the region and I am really looking forward to working together.”
