BTO Boosts Contentious Construction Services With Return of Michael Collins

18 May 2022

BTO Solicitors LLP’s highly regarded Property and Professional Liability team has been boosted with the appointment of Senior Associate and Solicitor Advocate Michael Collins.

Michael trained with BTO, qualifying in 2009, and progressed through the ranks in the firm’s Insurance Litigation team until 2020. He has since spent two years broadening his commercial experience in the construction team of a well-known international law firm, before deciding to return to BTO to embrace a new senior role and challenge.

In this new role, Michael will specialise in contentious construction matters. He advises insurers and policyholders - including developers/employers, consultants, contractors and subcontractors - on complex and high value construction and engineering claims. Michael also advises on insurance policy interpretation and indemnity issues arising under construction and property related policies.

“We are delighted to have Michael on board again. He is a highly talented lawyer with an ideal balance of experience and skills and the ability to provide clear, incisive strategic advice which clients welcome.

“We know he will be a strong asset to the team and to BTO’s portfolio of clients in this important part of the firm’s business.”
