Shoosmiths partner Graham Bennett attends plaque unveiling at Olympic sailing venue
Graham Bennett, partner and real-estate specialist at Shoosmiths, was among the 40 guests invited to see Lord Coe unveil a plaque at Portland Marina, which hosted the sailing events at the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games.
Bennett, who is based at the law firm’s Southampton office, used his marine-related knowledge to advice the Dorset marina’s owner Dean & Reddyhoff Ltd on development matters and putting together the legal structures required for delivering an Olympic venue.
Alongside associate Alison Westbrook, he advised on water-side lease negotiations with the Crown Estate and on land-side lease arrangements with the South West of England Regional Development Agency.
Shoosmiths also advises Dean & Reddyhoff on commercial and retail unit lettings. It also runs a helpline for general legal queries concerning all four of its marinas.
