Joelson is proud to announce the appointment of a new Partner to head up our Property Litigation department.
Joining the fold from another prominent London-based firm, Daniel Swimer brings with him not only a keen legal mind but also his extensive experience in the property litigation field. His previous role as a Senior Associate within a Property Dispute Resolution Group saw him advising clients on a broad range of contentious issues.
For more than a decade, Daniel has specialised in property litigation, working with developers, investors, landlords and tenants to resolve multimillion pound disputes, which has given him the in-depth knowledge of complex property disputes that makes his addition to the team so valuable.
His wide-ranging experience has seen him act for clients in cases that have involved, among others, breach of covenant, dilapidations, rights of light, party wall disputes, easements, issues of construction and real estate disputes in relation to insolvency.
However, Daniel has particularly focused on contentious portfolio management work resulting from the acquisition, development and management of commercial and residential real estate.
The level of expertise Daniel has acquired over the years has seen him assist cases in the High Court, County Court and First-Tier Tribunal, along with acting in numerous meditations and arbitrations. He is also a member of the Property Litigation Association and RICS Dilapidations Forum.
Speaking on his appointment to the firm, Daniel said: “I am very excited to be joining Joelson’s highly regarded property team. I hope that my knowledge of complex disputes and expertise in contentious matters will help the department continue to grow and expand its influence within the UK’s property sector.”
David Hershkorn, Partner in the Property team, said of the latest addition: “Daniel is the ideal appointment for our property team and brings with him substantial experience in a wide range of matters.
“There is certainly a growing demand from developers, landlords and tenants alike for clear and comprehensive legal advice on contentious matters, so Daniel’s appointment will strengthen our practice further in this area.”
