Winckworth Sherwood boosts its planning and real estate team
Wed 01 Feb 2017
Winckworth Sherwood has expanded its planning and real estate team with the appointment of a new partner, Tim Fogarty, a specialist in the fields of development risk, rights of light and planning litigation.
Tim will be joining on 1 February 2017 from RPC where he was head of the Real Estate Disputes team. He has a strong track record with over 25 years’ experience advising clients on a wide range of development issues with a particular focus on the residential and regeneration sectors. He is regularly called on to assist major UK house builders, including Bovis Homes, Bellway Homes, Crest Nicholson and Taylor Wimpey. Tim’s experience in the field of High Court planning challenges will add further strength and depth to Winckworth Sherwood’s leading planning team and more broadly to the firm’s 20 partner real estate development practice. Tim will be providing advice to developer clients on the strategic management of development risk including rights of light, neighbourly matters and practical site constraints.
Tim’s appointment sees him reunited with Karen Cooksley, head of planning and development risk, and her team after the pair worked together at Masons and Bevan Brittan for many years until 2009.
Tim Fogarty commented: “I am delighted to be joining such a respected law firm, where real estate is at the heart of the business and which continues to focus on growing and strengthening this core practice.”
Karen Cooksley, head of planning and development risk at Winckworth Sherwood said: “We are thrilled to be working with Tim again – he is a class-leading authority in his areas of expertise and will be advising clients across on a range of development risk issues across every stage of the cycle, drawing on his extensive knowledge and experience of the sector.”
