Andrew Gore is the second new partner, who works for specialist planning consultancy, Marrons Planning, part of Shakespeare Martineau. He has more than 15 years’ experience in the sector, during which he has worked with a host of housebuilders, landowners and land-promoters. His expertise helps clients to secure consent for medium to large-scale residential and commercial developments, including sustainable urban extensions (SUEs) and new settlements.
Lastly is Simon Robinson, now partner in the real estate team in the London office. With a background in commercial property, planning and environment law, Robinson is able to advise clients on a number of real estate issues from development and financing to management work. After holding the position of general counsel at a fully listed investment fund, Robinson adds commercial value to his clients’ property portfolios, as well as providing practical legal advice.
Helen Hay, Head of HR at Shakespeare Martineau, said: “Emma, Andrew and Simon are all thoroughly deserving of their promotions to the partnership. They have proven themselves to be indispensable assets to their teams, offering invaluable knowledge and experience.
“The commitment and passion that they have shown is inspiring. Recognising such dedication and empowering our people to be the best they can be is essential to the firm’s success, as without talented individuals, we wouldn’t be able to give our clients the brilliant results they’ve come to expect. I’m certain that they will continue to thrive in their new roles, supporting their teams in everything they do.”
