Maples Teesdale announced the arrival of two new partners, planning expert John Bosworth and commercial property specialist Martin Smith.

John brings a wealth of experience as a planning lawyer and as a partner, having previously been at Ashursts and more recently at Ashfords where he has been head of planning for a number of years. John will enhance the firm’s planning offering with his depth of knowledge and extensive experience.

Martin will be joining Maples Teesdale from Hewitsons and specialises in strategic land projects, property joint ventures, and development. His joining the firm represents a further strengthening of what we offer to our clients.

John and Martin joining Maples Teesdale is part of the firm’s commitment to being the only property law firm clients need and the UK’s leading commercial property law specialists.

Chris Wilkinson, managing partner at Maples Teesdale, said “We are delighted to welcome John and Martin into the partnership. Following the recent promotion of Anastasia Klein to partner, these hires add significant breadth to our ever-growing real estate capacity. We look forward to working with them as part of the team.”
