Nabarro Nathanson has defeated a string of competitors to win work on a major mixed-use regeneration scheme in Dover town centre.
Dover District Council has appointed a team led by Sheffield property partner Martin Grabiner, who joined from Dibb Lupton Alsop in 1998. Senior planning solicitor Tom Graham and senior property solicitor Victoria Thourgood also worked on the bid. It is understood that Nabarros won the instruction earlier this month over Berwin Leighton Paisner, Denton Wilde Sapte, Eversheds, Hammond Suddards Edge and Lovells. The council's head of legal Jim Horne said: "This is the biggest scheme Dover has done. It's a first-priority scheme, so clearly we wouldn't do it in-house. We invited selected specialists in to put proposals to us. We're talking about large or medium to large firms." Horne said he was looking for lawyers who had worked with local authorities on similar projects. "It was a most difficult choice," he said. "We received excellent presentations from all of those involved." The Nabarros team will now take a lead role in negotiations with developers.
