Our team: Ian Smith
Fladgate LLP’s (Fladgate) construction team acted on their third Star Wars themed project for Merlin Entertainments, the world’s second largest leisure group. The project at LEGOLAND® Windsor Resort creates scenes from the Star Wars movies made out of 1.5 million LEGO® bricks. Previous Star Wars themed instructions on which construction partner Barry Hembling and his team, including Ian Smith and Saya Lee, acted include the Star Wars experiences at Madame Tussauds London and Madame Tussauds Berlin. Fladgate is Merlin’s global construction law firm.
Fladgate has an established practice acting for clients in the public attraction and museum sectors. Some of the firm’s earliest instructions relate to this sector, including acting as solicitors to the Commissioners for the Great Exhibition of 1851, and an instruction from Abraham Lincoln, President of the United States, in 1862, to help set up the Smithsonian Institution.
