Reed Smith Richards Butler has raided the London office of DLA Piper to boost its real estate finance practice.
Terry Green will become a partner in the firm's European real estate finance team in August, working alongside financial services practice head Nola Beirne and real estate partners such as Paul Johnston and Graham Reid.
Reed Smith UK managing partner Tim Foster said Green was well regarded in the marketplace and, due to his strong relationships with major banks, is a welcome addition to the firm's real estate finance business.
"We've been able to step up the quality of our lateral hires since our merger earlier this year," said Foster. "Terry's well known and has a strong practice, as well as relationships with a number of banks that will add to the client base we can tap into."
Green has spent the majority of his professional career advising banks, funds and real estate companies. He handles a wide range of real estate assets, including hotels, shopping centres and industrial estates.
Earlier this year Reed Smith poached Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer finance partner Rex Rosales and Akin Gump Strauss Hauer & Feld restructuring partner Jeff Drew.
