Adrian has considerable experience in the real estate sector, advising both public and private sector organisations in project strategy and the implementation of portfolio and business change management from a legal perspective.
“Michelle brings a wealth of experience and contacts to help us further develop our practice. Education is one of Irwin Mitchell’s key business sectors and her expertise will help cement our offer in this area, particularly in the field of student accommodation. We have done considerable work in the education sector across the UK. We recently advised Sheffield Hallam University on the development plot on the Olympic Legacy Park site for its new Advanced Wellbeing Research Centre and we are advising South Essex College on the relocation of its Thurrock campus to a new £45 million state of the art facility which forms part of the town’s major regeneration scheme. We believe there are real opportunities for growth in this marketplace. Michelle is also a great team player and a highly motivated lawyer. I am delighted she is joining us.”
“Tim will be a great asset to the team. He has tremendous experience and following. Not only will he work closely with Ben Acheson and our real estate team in Birmingham to boost the practice locally, but he will help us develop our property litigation practice on a national level."
“House building has risen since the lows reached during the financial crisis of a decade ago but needs to almost double to hit the government’s target of 300,000 new homes a year by the middle of the next decade. At the moment it looks unlikely we will meet this.
"My additional (11th) priority for James Brokenshire is to stay in the job for long enough to make a difference. There have been 16 Ministers of State for Housing in the last 20 years including Gavin Barwell, Alok Sharma and Dominic Raab, within the last 12 months. Brockenshire needs to bring stability to the team.”
"Unless something is radically done to improve the planning system, to provide more incentives for construction and to re-look at how the tax regime can be better used to encourage development and movement in the market, I don’t think we’ll get very far. Let’s hope Brokenshire stays in place long enough to get his head round these critical issues and has the will and determination to push reform through, together with the backing of a Government that is genuinely committed to making a real and lasting difference to deliver on its commitments in this key issue for our Country.”
“Business occupiers appear to be cautiously positive at the moment, with most businesses staying put and making the most of existing space to full advantage. There is a stronger belief that rents are on their way up, leading to some occupiers considering more flexible office accommodation, so they are not so beholden to landlords on long upward-only leases.
“Brexit appears to be more of a background noise than a major disturbance, with more people concerned about the risk of a cyber-attack on their businesses and how they attract and keep the right staff.”
