Mills & Reeve has unveiled four new internal partner appointments.
Christian Bull, Carina Cobbold and Vincenzo Maggio will become partners in the law firm’s real estate team and Peter Wainman will become a partner in the technology team.
The appointments increase the partnership to 118 across the firm’s six UK offices and will take effect from 1 June 2014.
Christian Bull specialises in real estate work for the education sector and will help to expand the real estate offering to major education clients across the country. Christian has helped to develop the academies practice and will also provide real estate support for private sector clients.
Carina Cobbold is based in Norwich where major new developments are planned for the area. Cobbold is involved in the negotiations for the expansion of the internationally important Norwich Research Park and will also help the firm to exploit opportunities in the wider market for private sector developers, particularly in the south east.
Vincenzo Maggio works in the real estate investment sector handling complex matters for high profile clients such as Trinity College. He has also played a leading role in projects including the Cambridge Science Park, the deep water container port at Felixstowe and a major urban regeneration scheme.
Cambridge based Peter Wainman has been instrumental in recent blue chip client wins and has particular expertise in data protection advice for commercial clients, a significant growth area.
Mark Jeffries, Senior Partner at Mills & Reeve, said: “I am particularly pleased that in making these appointments we have been able to promote four outstanding lawyers who have been with the firm since they qualified as solicitors.”
