Bury-based law firm Clough & Willis has appointed David Leviten as partner and head of its commercial property team.
Leviten, who specialises in development investment and landlord and tenant cases, has worked in the legal profession for 26 years and joins Clough & Willis from Heatons. He previously worked for Pannone.
Leviten appointment follows the recent retirement of Paul Breedon who headed up the commercial property team for two years.
Shefali Talukdar, managing partner at Clough & Willis, said: "David's appointment is fantastic news for the firm. We've worked hard to develop our property offering and having David at the helm of the commercial team is the next phase in that growth. He brings with him years of experience that I know will benefit both our clients and team."
Leviten said: "Clough & Willis has a great reputation and my aim is to now develop the commercial property team so it becomes one of the leading names in the region."
