Southern Grove has appointed Bill Howard (pictured above) as group general counsel.

Bill joins the property developer from law firm Shoosmiths LLP, where he had been a partner since 2006.

He has specialised in property development and has extensive commercial experience.

Bill’s areas of expertise include joint ventures and large acquisitions in addition to options and conditional contracts.

“Bill has unrivalled experience in the property sphere, and we’ll be relying on his incisive legal knowledge to help us bring forward an ever expanding pipeline of schemes,” said Andrew Southern, chairman at Southern Grove.

Bill added: “Southern Grove is one of a new breed of developers that has dispensed with the old way of doing things and its methods sit neatly in what has undeniably become a sweet spot of mine.

“There’s a fantastic and expanding team here with huge ambition and I’m looking forward to being part of that.”
