Andrew Wallis to lead Irwin Mitchell’s real estate team in Sheffield

Irwin Mitchell has appointed Andrew Wallis as its new head of real estate in Sheffield.

Wallis joined the firm in 2011 and specialises in development projects from site acquisition through to exit strategies, in particular joint ventures and forward funding agreements.

He has a broad experience of all types of commercial property transactions and has also driven a number of major investment portfolio acquisitions and disposals. He has particular expertise in the student accommodation and build-to-rent-sectors and was the lead advisor on the biggest student accommodation property deal in the whole of the UK in 2016, which was worth £417.5 million.

“Irwin Mitchell has a very strong reputation for real estate work and I am delighted, and being a Sheffield lad, particularly proud to be leading the team here in the city,” said Wallis (pictured below).

“I am fortunate to be leading an already great team of exceptionally talented people and really excited about our ambitions for growth. Clients are everything and continuing to deliver a first class client service is paramount to what we do.”
