Mills & Reeve appoints partners in real-estate and technology teams

Mills & Reeve has announced four new internal partner appointments, bringing the partnership to 118 across the firm’s six UK offices.

Christian Bull, Carina Cobbold and Vincenzo Maggio will become partners in the real-estate team and Peter Wainman will become a partner in the technology team.

Bull specialises in real-estate work for the education sector and will help to expand the firm’s real-estate offering to major education clients across the country. He has helped to develop the academies practice and will also provide real-estate support for Mills & Reeve’s private sector clients. 

Based in Norwich where major new developments are planned for the area, Cobbold is involved in the negotiations for the expansion of the internationally important Norwich Research Park and will also help the firm to exploit opportunities in the wider market for private sector developers, particularly in the south east.

Maggio works in the real-estate investment sector and handles complex matters for high-profile clients such as Trinity College. He has also played a leading role in projects including the Cambridge Science Park, the deep-water container port at Felixstowe and a major urban regeneration scheme.

Wainman is based in Cambridge, where he has been instrumental in recent blue-chip client wins. He has particular expertise in data protection advice for commercial clients, a significant growth area.

The appointments will take effect from 1 June 2014.
