    Eversheds Sutherland boosts its indirect real estate offering with lateral Partner hire

    Eversheds Sutherland has strengthened its corporate practice with the appointment of Partner, Stewart Womersley.

    Stewart, who joins from the funds and indirect real estate team at Addleshaw Goddard LLP, has over 14 years' experience advising managers, funds, property companies (public and private) and investors (globally) on aspects of fund establishment, operation and management as well as secondary transfers of fund interests.

    In addition, Stewart focuses on complex corporate real estate transactions including the establishment and operation of joint ventures, acquisitions and disposals of UK and European corporate structures and corporate restructurings.

    Stewart joins a cross-department team at Eversheds Sutherland encompassing corporate, real estate, tax, funds and banking. The team was recently strengthened by the promotion of Theresa-Marie Stodell to corporate Partner earlier this year and the hire of Partner Paul Beausang, who joined Eversheds Sutherland as head of real estate tax in May.

    Richard Moulton, Head of Corporate commented:

    “Stewart joins a very strong corporate practice and at a particularly exciting period of growth. Indirect real estate is an area in which we see great opportunity and his appointment demonstrates our ongoing commitment to investing in that sector and building on our existing City offering. Stewart’s experience and knowledge draws together a high quality, multi-discipline corporate real estate team and we’re delighted to welcome him on board.”

    Stewart Womersley, Corporate Partner commented:

    “I’m excited to be joining the Eversheds Sutherland team, there is an opportunity to grow a thriving indirect real estate practice and I’m really looking forward to the challenge. I will be joining a market recognised corporate real estate team, and I hope to build on their recent successes to create an international leader in multi-disciplinary corporate real estate expertise.”

    Bruce Dear, Head of London Real Estate commented:

    “Stewart’s appointment adds real gravitas and in-depth experience to an already excellent team. We have a number of key clients that continue to require high quality corporate real estate advice and through Stewart’s arrival, we will be able to offer an enhanced end-to-end capability.”
