A former prison officer has joined regional law firm Harrison Clark's commercial property team.
Kevin Joynes qualified as a solicitor in 2001 and has joined Harrison Clark as a senior associate at its Worcester office.
He specialises in residential, commercial and mixed-use development work, having substantial experience across a range of property transactions.
He has particular expertise in the house building sector where he has for the last eleven years acted for most of the UK’s top ten volume house builders, as well as smaller regional developers.
Mr Joynes has acted for both private and public sector clients on many high profile developments including the new £400 million Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Edgbaston and the recent development of Edgbaston cricket ground.
Prior to qualifying as a solicitor he worked as a Prison Officer at HMP Blakenhurst in Redditch.
“He said: I am thrilled to be joining the region’s leading law firm and adding to the expertise and strength of the commercial property team.
“There is a great deal of development and regeneration planned in Worcester in the coming months and years and I am looking forward to playing my part in that.”
