Walker Morris boosts real-estate group with three appointments
An increase in commercial property work has led Walker Morris to boost its real-estate group with three new appointments.
In 2012, the group advised on some of the largest and most complex real-estate work — both nationally and regionally.
Jane Stark joins the group as an associate, having previously worked in the real-estate group of the London office of US firm Latham & Watkins.
Stark advised Qatar Holding on its acquisition of the Harrods Group and advised on the bond issue and refinancing of Manchester United Football Club Group.
Adam Reed and Thomas Jackson both trained with Walker Morris and recently qualified into the real-estate group.
