EVERSHEDS ANNOUNCES NEW REAL ESTATE PARTNER
International law firm Eversheds has appointed Andrew Li, as partner, to the firm’s real estate practice group. Andrew joins from Kimbells LLP, where he was the head of their property, construction and projects department. Andrew will be based in the Cambridge office and will have a secondary base in London, where he will work closely with Stephen Sorrell, Development & Regeneration Product Group Head.
Andrew has vast experience in regeneration and development projects as well as ten years experience working generally within the commercial property industry. Most recently Andrew led on a number of major transactions including a £750 million regeneration scheme in the West Midlands, the largest scheme in the region for decades. Andrew’s previous experience also includes advising Derbyshire County Council on its largest ever regeneration project, which attracted around £150m of private investment.
Andrew previously worked at DLA, having completed his initial training as a solicitor in 1998 at Eversheds.
A major part of Andrew’s role will be to ensure business development remains at the forefront of Eversheds’ strategy, increasing transactions throughout the UK and penetration into the London market.
Andrew Li comments on his appointment:
“I have a real interest in business development, and I am looking forward to working with Stephen Sorrell and a firm that already has a successful Real Estate practice. I was particularly drawn by Eversheds’ international reach and capabilities and I will add to Eversheds’ growth through the development of current client relationships, as well as driving new business.”
Andrew’s appointment comes shortly after Eversheds announced its merger with Rees & Freres and the addition of a team of parliamentary agents to the real estate group.
Stephen Sorrell, Development & Regeneration Product Group Head, Eversheds comments;
“Andrew’s appointment is another great addition to the London office and alongside the recent Rees & Freres merger is a clear demonstration of Eversheds’ growth strategy.”
