Mishcon boosts real estate with double SJ Berwin hire

The West End firm has secured the services of Nick Minkoff and Stephen Hughes, with the pair expected to bring with them a number of their existing clients.

Minkoff, who has been with SJ Berwin’s real estate team for 12 years, will start at Mishcon on 18 January.

Hughes’ start date is yet to be confirmed. He joined SJ Berwin in 2008 from Olswang, where he had been partner since 2001. He brought a number of clients with him to the top 20 firm, including real estate asset management company Delancey.

Other clients represented by the two partners in recent times include Jesta Capital Corporation, property developer Londonewcastle and property investment company Mapeley.
