Stephen Kinsey - Addleshaw Goddard

Within: Commercial property: Manchester

Addleshaw Goddard’s ‘well-resourced’ team is ‘a major player in the Manchester legal market’, and handles the full spectrum of commercial real estate matters. The energy, housing, healthcare, logistics and transport sectors are key focuses of the department. Catherine Fearnhead advised National Grid Gas on the transfer of its gas distribution transportation assets, which included committing framework and processes for more than 10,000 properties, as well as the hive out and separation of regulated and non-regulated assets. She also advised Omega Warrington on the £14m sale and development of a manufacturing, distribution and warehouse facility for owner-occupier DP Group Developments. Stephen Kinsey advised Citybranch on the £35m redevelopment of the former Altrincham General Hospital site; and team head Peter Kershaw advised Standard Life on a range of high-profile matters. Clients also single out Colette Withey, who is ‘extremely pragmatic and commercial in her approach’ and has ‘strong industry knowledge’; and the ‘very able’ Vicky Niescier. In other highlights, legal director Michael Corbett led Peel Group on the structuring of the delivery of a mixed-use scheme at MediaCityUK; and Lucy Butterworth (also a legal director) advised Alderley Park on several transactions, including a £20m residential plot sale to PH Properties. Legal director Julie Hodkinson and railway property expert Robin Warburton (also a legal director) are also recommended.
