Specialist property law firm Brady Solicitors has recruited Julie Carr as a director and head of real estate development.

Julie (pictured top right) joins Nottingham-based Bradys from DWF in Leeds, where she was a partner and head of the firm’s residential development team.

Julie’s appointment further strengthens the firm’s renowned property litigation and property management expertise.

Managing director Clare Brady (pictured top left) said: ‘Julie’s appointment is a real coup for Bradys and the perfect fit for the firm.’

Julie said: ‘This is an exciting opportunity for me to work with this dynamic, young firm to build the real estate development offering.

‘We share the view that asset management and the ability to easily dispose of a land investment asset free from shortfalls, voids and management issues should be considered at the onset of development and carried through in the estate set up process.’
