Peter Stockdale takes top construction clients to law firm Campbell Hooper

The high-profile law firm Pinsent Masons is losing five members of its private sector regeneration team.

The regeneration legal specialists, headed by partner Peter Stockdale, will bring key clients to London-based firm Campbell Hooper including housebuilders Bellway, Berkeley and contractor Gleeson.

Stockdale, who will start work on Monday as a partner in the regeneration group, said he was making the move because of the focus on regeneration at Campbell Hooper.

Campbell Hooper has Countryside Properties, Taylor Woodrow and David Wilson on its client list.

Stockdale, who is 56 and has worked on regeneration projects in the Thames Gateway, is bringing four associate solicitors and four administrative staff with him.
