Targeting Manchester: Nabarro bolsters office with Pinsents and Eversheds hires

Nabarro has bolstered its recently opened Manchester office with the hire of corporate partner Howard Gill and real estate partner Peter Winnard.

Gill joins from Pinsent Masons as the firm’s first corporate partner in the city with the office previously being real estate oriented, though he does handle work from real estate and hotel clients. Winnard, who joins from Eversheds, has experience in development and regeneration real estate work in the North West.

The firm is in hiring mode, having also announced appointments both in Dubai with the hire of Ravinder Bhullar from Baker Botts, and to its infrastructure, construction and energy practice (ICE) with the hire of Kevin Joyce, a project partner and disputes specialist also from Pinsent Masons.

Commenting on the appointments, the firm’s senior partner, Graham Stedman, said: ‘We have rapidly built, high quality partner-led teams in both Dubai and Manchester which are already winning good work. This focused investment is matched by recruitment to our Infrastructure, Construction and Energy practice which has a central role in connecting our international hubs with the needs of an increasingly global client base.’
