Land Securities concludes legal panel review
23 March 2016
Land Securities today announces that it has concluded its review of property legal advisers and has appointed Berwin Leighton Paisner, CMS Cameron McKenna DAC Beachcroft, Eversheds, Herbert Smith Freehills, Hogan Lovells, Nabarro and Pinsents to its property panel.
The process was run over several months and had significant input from the business teams at Land Securities.
The new panel will take effect from 1 May 2016 and will be in place for five years.
Tim Ashby, Group General Counsel at Land Securities, said: “We are confident that Land Securities has a legal panel of property experts who can partner with us and support our business over the next phase of its strategy. Involving the business teams throughout the process was a critical element to getting this right.”
Most of the firms on the panel already act for Land Securities, with Pinsent Masons as the only new appointment.
Mike Reid, real estate partner from Pinsent Masons, said: “We are extremely proud to have been given the opportunity to develop and build on our relationship with Land Securities as part of their refreshed legal panel of advisers. We hope to bring our sector focus and reputation for innovation to bear on the relationship and provide specialist legal support across the business. We look forward to working with the team closely."
