Trowers & Hamlins has welcomed partner Dan Banks to its property litigation team in Manchester.

Banks, who was previously with Trowers from 2017 to 2019, re-joins the firm from Fieldfisher where he was a legal director.

He has 14 years’ experience in advising on the acquisition, disposal, development and management of real estate.

Banks relocated from London to Manchester in 2020 to set up Fieldfisher’s Manchester property litigation team.

Trowers' Manchester head of office and head of real estate sector Suzanne Benson commented: 'The breadth of [Banks'] experience in property litigation issues is a real asset to the firm and he really compliments our wider Real Estate team both in Manchester and nationally. We are looking forward to working with him again and having him as part of our growing Manchester based team.'

Banks added: 'The office’s renown has grown massively in my time away and I am excited to be coming back and do my part to help with its growth, that of the property sector and the broader firm overall.'
