Leading Black Country law firm George Green LLP are delighted to announce the appointment of Kevin Styles as the new head of their real estate offering. Kevin joins a strong team currently led by Ceri Mort. Ceri plans to relocate to the south of England following her recent marriage, but remains with the firm as a partner for the time being.
Ms Mort says: “I am delighted that Kevin has decided to join the George Green team. He shares our vision of the creation of a progressive real estate team combining technical excellence with commerciality and pragmatism. This is an exciting opportunity for both Kevin and George Green LLP.”
Mr Styles says: “I have known and respected George Green LLP throughout my career and like the way they combine considerable technical ability with a commercial understanding of their clients’ businesses. This enables them to provide pragmatic and relevant advice to add real value to their clients. I am very much looking forward to working with the George Green team to create one of the leading real estate teams in the region.”
Senior Partner, Paul Bennett commented: “We have been looking for the right person to work with us to help us take advantage of the opportunities we see in a resurgent but still challenging real estate market. Kevin is very well respected both regionally and nationally and brings with him over 25 years experience having led the commercial property team of a major practice over many years. This is a significant appointment not only in terms of our commercial property offering but also demonstrates our wider ambition in recruiting the region’s most able lawyers.”
