BCLP boosts Real Estate Disputes team with new partner
Bryan Cave Leighton Paisner (BCLP) has announced the appointment of Victoria Blanchard as a partner in the Real Estate Disputes practice in the UK. She joins from Lawyers on Demand where as a consultant she has been working closely with BCLP and its real estate clients for a number of years.
Victoria is a leading real estate litigation lawyer with extensive experience in rights of light and development constraints matters. She is regularly sought out by BCLP’s real estate clients to devise and implement strategies to mitigate rights of light injunction risk and also advises on other contentious issues arising out of development such as restrictive covenants, nuisance, derogation from grant and quiet enjoyment.
Akhil Markanday, Global Head of Real Estate Disputes said: “We have worked with Victoria for a number of years and having her join us as a partner is hugely exciting for us and our clients given the busy development pipeline. Our strategic insight and strength in depth across the real estate sector group allows us to help clients unlock the most complicated developments. Victoria will be leading the rights of light and development practice and her and the team’s experience in this space is a real differentiator.”
Victoria added: “Having worked closely with the market leading real estate and real estate disputes teams at BCLP for the past few years I’m delighted to join as a partner. I look forward to leading the busy rights of light and development constraints practice and working with the firm’s clients on many exciting new projects.”
