Morrison has spent more than 25 years advising public and private sector clients ranging from central government bodies such as Homes England, local authorities and a variety of developers on structuring large scale regeneration and urban development projects. He is recognised for structuring and delivering public private JVs, partnerships and finance arrangements with the ability to navigate the public private space and associated regulatory space.
He said “Place Capital Group is bringing real innovation to the comprehensive revival of our essential former council estates through its development partnering model and the outputs of this will benefit thousands of people through better quality, affordable homes set within renewed urban spaces.”
David Smith-Milne, CEO of Place Capital Group, said: “We are delighted to announce the appointment of Karl and Scot to the board. Their knowledge of the regeneration sector and the strength of their experience will be invaluable as we grow the business, both organically and through acquisition.”
Law firm Bromleys has enhanced its Court of Protection team with two appointments. Chris Brayshaw and Rebecca Calverley have joined the Tameside practice from firms in Manchester city centre.
Bromleys’ Court of Protection team, led by John Longworth, acts for clients who lack the mental capacity to manage their own property and financial affairs due to reasons such as injury, illness or old age.
Solicitor Chris specialises in high-value Court of Protection work and lasting power of attorney cases, acting on behalf of clients from teenagers to the elderly on end-of-life care.
Chris, who is a member of the Court of Protection Practitioners Association, also has extensive experience of advising on personal injury and wills, trusts and probate matters. He said: “There is a real synergy between my values and those of Bromleys. The firm echoes my belief about the importance of helping others.”
Rebecca has joined Bromleys as a paralegal. She has 10 years’ experience working with clients and their families to support them in managing their financial affairs, and is an associate member of the Chartered Institute of Legal Executives. She said: “Having worked in a busy Court of Protection team at a city centre firm for over 10 years, I wanted to seek a new challenge.”
Mark Hirst, senior partner at Bromleys, said “Our Court of Protection team is held in high regard on a regional and a national level. They are experienced, hardworking and dedicated, with a real passion for their work, so it was crucial that we recruited like-minded experts to complement our existing team.
“Chris and Rebecca will each play a key role in helping the department go from strength to strength and I wish them long and happy careers with us.”
