New Head of Planning & Environment at Spearing Waite

Tom Bower & Pritpal Singh Swarn

Planning & Environment Specialist Pritpal Singh Swarn joins Spearing Waite as a Partner after spending the last 11 years at Wright Hassall spearheading their Planning and Environment department.

Pritpal has over 16 years’ experience- including in the public sector- of dealing with planning, highways, environmental and related local government law issues. Pritpal works with the public, private and business sectors.

After studying law at the University of Leicester, Pritpal went to Guildford College of Law to undertake his Legal Practice Course.

On joining Spearing Waite, Pritpal said “Spearing Waite is a progressively dynamic practice and punches well above its weight. This is an exciting opportunity to grow this discipline and enhance the services offered to both our current client base and also to new clients”.

Head of Real Estate, Tom Bower said “We are delighted to have recruited Pritpal. We took on Piet van Gelder last year to head up our Construction department and we have already appointed two assistants for him. Pritpal will head up the Planning & Environment department and we plan for similar growth in his team in a similar timeframe. We have always been a strong real estate practice and have one of the largest teams of lawyers in the east midlands. The arrival of Pritpal means that we can offer the same full spectrum of real estate related advice as more expensive national and London based firms”

Pritpal is married with three children and lives in Warwickshire.
