Howard Kennedy has won new client ING Real Estate Development with the hire of new partner Deborah Swanwick from Lawrence Graham.
Swanwick was a senior assistant at Lawrence Graham, but she had been the lawyer acting for ING Real Estate.
She previously advised the client on a shopping centre development in Milton Keynes between 1998 and 2001. Since 2001 she has been advising the client on a factory outlet scheme in County Durham – a deal that she has taken with her to Howard Kennedy.
Swanwick specialises in acting for landlords and developers of in-town shopping centres and out-of-town factory outlet centres including site acquisition, development, pre-letting and ongoing management of the centres.
Swanwick said her decision to move to Howard Kennedy was “a positive career move”.
Head of property at Lawrence Graham, Stephen Stephens, said: “We wish Deborah well.”
