As ‘one of the strongest regional firms’, Womble Bond Dickinson (UK) LLP’s property litigation  group ‘can compete alongside any City firm and is far above average on a national basis’. The firm’s ‘international clout’ was strengthened by its tie-up with US-based Carlyle Sandridge & Rice LLP, which has resulted in an increase in international instructions, particularly in the energy sector.  James Rees is ‘extremely able and experienced’ and acts as client partner for a number of the department’s most significant clients, such as Network Rail Infrastructure, Ladbrokes Coral and National Trust. Sasha Hinton and Stephanie Doyle are managing associates in the department. Patrick Wetherall has left the firm to join Foot Anstey.
