Marc and Adriano are both highly established construction lawyers, proven business generators and market leaders who share our values and our vision for the Real Estate department. The strategic importance of these individual hires to our practice cannot be underestimated. We are delighted to welcome them both to the team."

I now look forward to working closely with an outstanding group of colleagues.”
Adriano added: “It’s an exciting time to be joining Mishcon de Reya, with the wider construction team having already laid strong foundations for future growth.
