Irwin Mitchell’s extensive client base encompasses commercial property investors, developers, retailers, banks, local institutions, corporate occupiers and high-net-worth individuals; examples include Logicor, Thorntons, River Island and the University of Sheffield. Danny Revitt, who ‘provides clear advice so that matters are dealt with in a practical and commercial fashion’, leads the ‘impressive’ department and focuses on landlord and tenant issues; he recently advised a regional property investor on the aftermath of the administration of a tenant and represented a real estate investor in a dilapidation claim against a former tenant of office premises. ‘Proactive’ senior associate Lisa Stratford and associate Joanne Mills are also names to note; the pair worked together acting for a real estate fund in a service charge claim regarding historic disrepair.
