Our Solihull real estate team is growing
An expert in residential and mixed-use development, Joanna has worked with a variety of housebuilders, land promoters, private landowners and social housing providers, offering support on strategic and immediate land acquisition and disposal. Joanna can provide legal advice on various aspects of a development project, including conditional and unconditional contracts, developer and landowner collaboration agreements, long-term options, promotion agreements, and land pooling arrangements.
Our national real estate team is always determined to stay abreast of the industry’s most pertinent issues, meaning Joanna is joining this talented team at an exciting time of change when refinements to the group’s strategy are well underway.
Barry Fisher, our real estate partner, said:
“Joanna is bringing over 15 years of experience to the table and will undoubtedly be a great asset to the office and the firm. Her skill and breadth of knowledge will complement the team perfectly, ensuring our clients continue to receive the best quality advice possible. I’m sure that Joanna will shine in her new role as partner.
“We are very proud of our growing team and the benefits it brings to the Solihull area and wider market. Being a local office of a national law firm allows us to access a whole range of services and expertise with ease, something which our clients truly appreciate and value.”
Joanna Deffley said of her appointment:
“The reason I became a development lawyer is because I enjoy solving problems and seeing new deals and developments succeed. Without outstanding client service, these results cannot be achieved, and I believe Shakespeare Martineau holds the same ethos. I can’t wait to be a part of such a forward-thinking firm full of exceptional talent.”
