This year, The Lawyer’s annual ranking of the largest UK law firms by turnover is available as an interactive, digital benchmarking tool. For the first time this will allow you to manipulate each data set against the metrics of your choice.
The hire grows Trowers' commercial property group to 11 partners. Leavy had been a partner at Fladgates for two years after being at CMS Cameron McKenna for six years. Trowers' property practice accounts for nearly half of the firm's UK turnover.
Trowers senior partner and head of property Jonathan Adlington said: "[Leavey's] experience on major mixed-use regeneration schemes fits well with the focus of our current commercial property work."
Leavey's move comes as Fladgates welcomes Frances Alderson to its construction practice from Sprecher Grier Halberstam, where she headed the construction and energy department. Alderson had previously been a partner at Masons for 15 years.
