Helen Streeton boosts Forsters' market leading real estate team

Forsters LLP, one of London’s leading real estate law firms, has appointed Helen Streeton as a partner in its Commercial Real Estate practice. She will be joining the firm on 1 December 2015.

Helen's arrival will be a significant boost to Forsters' development practice, which advises clients such as BA Pension Fund, LXB, Rockspring, Canmoor Asset Management and Menta Developments. Her skill set will further complement those of the existing partners, and her arrival coincides with a sustained period of growth at the firm. In the last 12 months Forsters has experienced a 14% increase in revenue.

Smita Edwards, senior partner at Forsters, said: "Helen is a highly regarded lawyer and will be a welcome addition to our team. She will principally focus on complex development projects and will play an important part in delivering the next stage of our success."

Helen Streeton said: "Having worked in the real estate sector for over 20 years, I will be bringing to Forsters considerable expertise covering the whole of the development process. The market is still very buoyant and investors and developers continue to capitalise on the huge interest in UK real estate. I am looking forward to re-joining Forsters at a time when the firm is riding high on four years of successful growth."
