Winning praise for service to clients

Have your say

The property litigation practice at Nabarro has been hailed by clients as “one of the best in the region” and praised for its high-quality level of service, sound reasoning, and clear recommendations”.

Nabarro’s team is led by Stephen Scott, who was appointed head of the firm’s Sheffield office earlier this year.

Mr Scott specialises in complex redevelopment work for clients such as warehousing, light industrial and data centre owner and developer SEGRO and property group Hammerson, which became a client last year.

DLA Piper’s Sheffield and Leeds offices share a place with Nabarro among the top ranked Yorkshire offices in the field.

Its team, led by Petra Billing in Sheffield, is praised for having a strong regional presence in addition to benefiting from the firm’s resources further afield.

The team handles all contentious and non-contentious issues relating to National Express’s property portfolio, which involves working in conjunction with colleagues at DLA Piper’s offices in Chicago and Baltimore.

The Nabarro and DLA Piper teams head second-ranked Irwin Mitchell, whose practice head, Danny Revitt, is praised for providing clients, who include River Island and Persimmon Homes, with straightforward solutions.

Lupton Fawcett Lee & Priestley’s offices in Sheffield and Leeds and the Sheffield offices of Taylor & Emmet and Wake Smith are among those who share a place lower down this year’s rankings.
