Host of a chance

A debate on the commercial lease code organised by Nabarro Nathanson last week boasted some pretty important names, including representatives from Land Securities, Hammerson and the Office of the Deputy Prime Minister. It also happened to include Dixons Group managing director Martin Meech – who just happens to be finalising his real estate and property litigation panel at the moment.

No doubt partners at Nabarros must have been pleasantly surprised when Meech announced to the audience that he didn't think he'd make it out of the building without promising the firm at least a little bit of work. Nabarros' partners couldn't have planned it better if they'd tried.
