Dundas hires FFW partner for London real estate push

Dundas & Wilson has hired Field Fisher Waterhouse partner Kenneth Maxwell to lead its property finance team.

Maxwell will join Dundas’ London office after five years as a partner at Field Fisher. He will focus on the mid to high value property market, and will be charged with growing the firm’s real estate finance practice.

Dundas & Wilson managing partner Donald Shaw said: “We’ve spent time looking for the right person to join us to develop what we see as a key growth area for the firm.”

The firm has been actively hiring in London. In June Dundas raided Taylor Wessing’s EU and competition group to hire partner Peter Willis as head of its national team in London.
