This article reports that the law firm Berwin Leighton Paisner (BLP) has sent Shockwave through the legal real estate market by scooping Clifford Chance's Robert MacGregor as its new head of real estate. The appointment is a coup for BLP's real estate practice, which has suffered criticism in recent months for a perceived lack of management direction and a spate of departures, including those of real estate partners. It also signals an end to BLP's protracted search for a new head of real estate, which started in March 200,3 after the former head Phillip Bretherton stood down.
