Mishcon signs up new head of planning

Mishcon de Reya has scooped an Eversheds lawyer, Oliver Goodwin, as its new head of planning and environmental law.

Goodwin was working with the Eversheds team advising on the planning application for the London Development Agency in support of London’s Olympic bid.

Goodwin said: “I want to get on the fast-track, building and developing my own team.”

Goodwin joined Eversheds from Campbell Hooper, where he was head of planning, in 2003. Prior to that he was at Berwin Leighton Paisner.
