Reed Smith gains Denton partner in real estate boost

Reed Smith has added a fourth partner to its London real estate department with a lateral from Denton Wilde Sapte.

Richard Perkins, whose client list includes Burleigh Estates plc, Helios Properties, CapReal, The Restaurant Group and Somerset House, joins as three Eversheds associates also jump ship to Reed Smith, specifically its Midlands office.

The lawyers, Jonathan Wright, Rebecca Warren and Donna Hopkins, will be reunited with former Eversheds partner Nigel Watkins who moved to Reed Smith’s Coventry office in 2001.
