Pinsent Masons has scooped Pitmans partner and head of planning Daniel Drukarz to head its London-based planning and environmental team.
His appointment, which brings Pinsents' planning team's headcount close to 30, is expected to be the first of a series of hires into the team. "This is a very busy time for our planning and environmental team and this is a key hire for us after a sustained period of expansion over the past 24 months," said Pinsents head of property Adrian Barlow.
The team has most recently acted for one of the bidders for the Docklands Light Railway City extension and represented four London boroughs on planning applications relating to London's 2012 Olympic bid.
