Eversheds build its property team

The Nottingham office of Eversheds is continuing with its ambitious growth and has added two new senior associates to its property team.

Following on from the appointment of four new solicitors at the Nottingham office earlier this month, the firm has now appointed Ben Acheson and Vik Moothia as senior associates.

Ben, 34, joins the firm from the London office of international law firm Macfarlanes, where he worked within the development and investment group of the commercial property department. Ben spent ten years with the firm where he handled a broad range of commercial property work, including investment sales and purchases, landlord and tenant and development work.

Ben will focus on attracting new clients to the East Midlands market. He says: “Eversheds is the stand out firm in the region in terms of national reach and the services it offers. The last few years have been a challenge for the property industry and we are now looking to grow the team back to what it was. I am looking forward to re-establishing the team and I hope that I will be able to help to significantly increase the property offering currently here with both my experience and expertise.”

Vik, 35, joins Eversheds from Nottingham-based firm Massers where he was a partner and headed the commercial property team. Vik says: “Eversheds is unique in the East Midlands because of its industry sector focused specialisms and the international offering available through its Nottingham office. The firm already boasts a strong local client base and through the contacts that I have made over the years, I’m here to further strengthen that client base by offering Eversheds’ unrivalled service quality and specialisms to more businesses and professionals across the East Midlands.

“Having lived and worked in the locality for the majority of my life, the firm’s continued support of the community through its varied CSR programmes is also something I’m really looking forward to getting involved with.”

James Fry, senior office partner for Eversheds in Nottingham says: “We are delighted to be able to welcome Ben and Vik to the team. With their combined experience and contacts, I am confident that they will give the already growing property team a real boost. They follow on closely from four other appointments in March this year and are part of our continuing growth plans in terms of being able to provide our clients with a strong service offering across the East Midlands.”
