Withers expands real-estate practice with three appointments
Withers has recruited partner Julie Teal to its London real-estate group. The law firm has also hired associates David Holland, who will join the top-tier rural real-estate team, and Eloise Morgan, who joins as a property litigator.
Teal is a construction law specialist and joins the firm from Fenwick Elliott. She advises on non-contentious construction matters including procurement structures, insolvency issues, construction aspects of agreements for lease, development and facility agreements and agreements for sale.
Holland joins from Wilsons Solictors, while Morgan is from Falcon Chambers.
