New senior associate bolsters RWK Goodman’s Bath construction and engineering team

November 15, 2022

The construction and engineering team at Bath-headquartered law firm RWK Goodman has been strengthened with the appointment of Patrick Duggan as a senior associate.

Patrick, pictured, who joins from the Bath office of Top 60 law firm Taylor Rose, is a construction disputes specialist with a background in quantity surveying and has worked predominantly in commercial litigation since he qualified as a solicitor in 1999. 

Patrick is able to support clients across the whole range of issues that typically crop up in construction disputes, ranging from the design and construction of commercial and residential development, civil engineering works and retail and leisure projects to educational facilities and research laboratories and renewable energy projects – both on and offshore.

As a former quantity surveyor, Patrick – who will be based in RWK Goodman’s Bath head office – has in-depth experience of construction and engineering projects.

This knowledge means he is always quick to grasp the relevant issues and is able to help his clients move to a resolution in as short a timeframe as possible. 

Notably, he also has higher rights of audience which allow him to represent his clients in court.

Patrick said: “Construction & engineering disputes are for me the more interesting side of the law.

“They allow you to sometimes deal with very technical issues and sometimes to get stuck in and get your hands dirty with the more basic realities of building. 

“RWK Goodman has a leading reputation in this discipline and I am delighted to have  joined  their team in Bath.”

RWK Goodman was formed earlier this year from the merger of Bath-headquartered Royds Withy King and London practice Goodman Derrick,

The firm, which employs more than 500 people, has two offices in Bath – Northumberland Buildings in Queen Square and Midland Bridge House on Midland Bridge – along with offices in Oxford, Swindon and London.
