Lawyer moves firms for the first time to join Shoosmiths’ real estate team

UK law firm Shoosmiths has expanded its award-winning real estate team with the appointment of Simon Foster as a partner.

Simon previously worked at Laytons Solicitors for the entire 13 years of his career and established his name by building a property litigation practice from the ground up. He is recommended in both The Legal 500 and Chambers & Partners.

Simon has experience in handling proceedings before the County Court, High Court, First Tier Tribunal (Property Chamber), Upper Tribunal (Lands Chamber), in contentious property matters at non-statutory public inquiries and in supporting non-contentious property teams.

His clients include household name residential developers, owners of commercial and residential property portfolios, retailers, charities, housing associations and major construction companies.

Nicholas Shepherd, partner said: “Simon Foster is bringing his hallmark energy and enthusiasm that made him a success at his previous firm to Shoosmiths. As a senior property litigation presence, we welcome Simon to our real estate team as our plans for growth continue.”

Simon Foster said: “The opportunity to join such a prestigious firm was one I grasped with both hands. I am very much looking forward to playing my part in further developing Shoosmiths’ large and renowned real estate practice in the south of England.”
