Double hire for Devonshires as expansion continues

We're delighted to have strengthened our Real Estate and Projects team with two new Partner hires. Taking our total number of Partners to 63.

Leo Stevens and Ben Halsey both join Devonshires from Sharratts. They are specialist housing development Solicitors and will be joining the 58-strong team headed up by Jonathan Corris and Triya Maicha

Ben and Leo both act for registered providers, both not-for-profit and for-profit, on a wide variety of work arising principally from a property and development perspective, including disposal and acquisition, finance/security, planning and infrastructure projects.  

Leo has also acted for a major private housebuilder on numerous affordable housing disposals to registered providers in recent years including on a number of joint ventures.  Leo also has experience in shared ownership disposals.

Ben has advised providers and investors in relation to investment in rented and shared ownership housing portfolios, stock transfer and similar ‘exit’ transactions involving the disposal of newly delivered stock.      

The new hires, who will be based in Devonshires’ London office, are the latest stage in an exciting expansion at the firm. Earlier this month 11 lawyers were promoted to Partner and Mark London became senior Partner, taking over from Philip Barden.

Leo said: “I am absolutely delighted to be joining such a highly respected team and I’m excited to be part of Devonshires’ expansion.”

Ben said: “Devonshires is an ambitious firm with a rich pedigree. I’m look forward to bringing my skill set to the team and to help drive further growth.”

Triya Maicha, joint head of the Real Estate and Projects team, said: “We are delighted to have been able to attract two fantastic Partners to join the firm. It is testament to our ambition and plans for future growth that we can recruit top talent like Leo and Ben and reinforces our commitment to delivering an exceptional service to our clients. I wish them well in their careers at Devonshires and look forward to working with them.”
