Each of John, James and Alice are responsible for coordinating real estate teams in these three regions across the 12-office strong firm, all of which provide real estate services to clients across the UK. John will manage the co-ordination of the Northern region comprising of Leeds, Liverpool, Manchester and Sheffield, James across Birmingham, Derby, Leicester and Nottingham and Alice in Bristol, London, Milton Keynes and Oxford.

With Freeths’ long-standing reputation in real estate and forward-thinking five-year growth strategy, John, James, and Alice will support the firm’s National Head of Real Estate, Darren Williamson through their new roles.

Partner and National Head of Real Estate at Freeths Darren Williamson said: “With the combination of the ‘home grown’ talent that James brings, John’s experience from 27 years at Irwin Mitchell and with Alice having joined us last year after 19 years at Herbert Smith Freehills, these appointments will help further our sector aims. The high calibre of these astute real estate lawyers coupled with their business acumen will assist us in furthering our ambitions for growth and to be the go-to firm for real estate lawyers looking for a fulfilling career in a supportive environment. It is a huge pleasure to welcome them into their new roles.”
