Addleshaws scores RDA double with NW win

Addleshaw Booth & Co has won a place on a second regional development agency panel.

The firm will be offering legal advice to the new North West RDA, which covers the area from Cheshire to Cumbria. Earlier this year Addleshaws was appointed to the RDA for Yorkshire and Humberside.

Eversheds has also been appointed to the North West RDA panel. Stephen Sorrell, head of property at Eversheds, will lead the advisory panel.

The appointment is for three years and both firms will advise on a wide range of legal issues.

Both firms used to offer advice to English Partnerships, one of three groups which has been amalgamated to form the new bodies.

The other two are the investment agency Inward and the Rural Development Commission.

Two further firms are understood to have been appointed to the panel.

Last week, The Lawyer revealed that Bevan Ashford had been appointed by the South West RDA, beating Nabarro Nathanson and Eversheds.

Nabbarros had been appointed as sole adviser to the South East RDA one month previously.
