Independent law firm Brabners has appointed Roy Barry partner in its Manchester office.
Barry joins from Eversheds Sutherland and will lead the firm’s development, regeneration and infrastructure offering in the city.
Prior to Eversheds, he was senior in-house counsel for property at Manchester Airports Group and led several projects relating to the growth of Airport City, the employment, retail and leisure scheme.
Barry said: “From the transformation of Liverpool’s waterfront to the economic hub of Manchester, the North West’s real estate portfolio is seeing huge levels of investment. As such it is an exciting time to be advising developers and public bodies in the region as they continue to boost the North West’s standing both nationally and internationally.
“My focus will be on helping to grow the team, maintaining outstanding client service and ensuring Brabners plays a central role in enabling the schemes that will be crucial to the economic development of the region’s businesses and communities.”
