Conexus Law, the specialist advisory firm that provides legal and commercial advice to clients who work in sectors where the built environment, technology, engineering and people converge, has appointed a specialist dispute resolution and commercial litigation lawyer. Ian Timlin brings with him nearly 30 years’ experience including acting for long standing technology clients in the following sectors: data centres, document management, telephony, car parking and young driver insurance. Career highlights include: leading and completing the successful settlement of complex multi-party multi-insurer construction claims including recovering £21m from a FTSE 100 construction company, architect and their insurers following mediation. Ian Timlin said: “I have been a CEDR Accredited Mediator since 2000 and feel strongly that discussion and negotiation are often the primary tool in resolving disputes and Court proceedings. This is particularly important during this pandemic where companies, businesses and individuals need to work together to get the best possible outcome and maintain good working relationships for when this is all over.” Ed Cooke, founder at Conexus Law, said: “Ian’s clients comment that he is straight talking, tough (when necessary), practical, tenacious and ultimately very commercial in getting disputes resolved. He is a great asset to our growing team and will be invaluable in helping our clients both through these unprecedented times and after as we start the process of rebuilding.” Ian was previously an equity partner at Maxwell Batley on Chancery Lane and at City law firm, Speechly Bircham, and the Group Legal Director for a large offshore property development, investment and construction group based in the Channel Islands.
He is also an accomplished sports lawyer, with particular and significant experience in the world of motorsport, advising in respect of disputes and putting in place a myriad of commercial contracts in that sector.
