Linklaters’ UK real estate head Anne Byrne is to join property investment company Capital & Counties Properties (Capco) as its first legal chief.
Byrne, who advised the company while at the magic circle firm, is set to take on the role in February after becoming the latest in a string of partners to resign from the City property practice this summer (21 June 2012).
Capco said Byrne, in the newly formed role of legal counsel, would be the principal legal adviser to the company’s board and senior management and “play a pivotal part in the development of future corporate strategy”. She will be Capco’s first in-house lawyer.
Capco CEO Ian Hawksworth said in a statement: “Her wealth of experience and knowledge in UK real estate law will be a great addition to the company as we continue to pursue our ambitious strategy going forward.”
Byrne, a Linklaters partner since 2001, advised Capco on a joint venture with entities owned by Hong Kong’s Kwok family last year to develop a 7.5 acre site at Seagrave Road, Earls Court, into a residential complex.
Her other clients included Capital Shopping Centres, ProLogis and UBS.
