City law firm Lewis Silkin LLP announces the addition of renowned planning law expert Paul Winter to the firm’s Real Estate and Development team.

Paul joins the firm as a consultant, previously practicing as specialist planning law advisory firm Paul Winter & Co.

Paul is a specialist planning lawyer with particular expertise in planning strategy and execution. His career spans 40 years and includes serving as head of Eversheds’ national planning team.

We are delighted to welcome Paul to Lewis Silkin. He brings to us a wealth of industry recognised knowledge and expertise as well as first rate experience on some very high profile projects.
