Devonshires has promoted two solicitors to partner in the current promotions round from April 1.
We are delighted to announce that Saghar Roya, a Solicitor in our Securitisation Team and Tom Keya, a Solicitor in our Commercial Litigation team have been made up to partner.
Saghar acts for a vast number of Registered Providers, including most G320 members. Saghar’s broad knowledge and experience includes advising on all aspects of the Securitisation process in the charging of security under varying loan facilities, private placements and bonds ranging from £1 million to £250 million as well as working closely with Registered Providers to maximise and uplift the value of their existing property portfolios. In addition, Saghar also heads up the Smaller Registered Providers sub-department which works exclusively with Smaller Registered Providers to provide a more bespoke service advising on all their securitisation matters.
Tom Keya advises corporate, public and private clients on contentious and non-contentious commercial matters. His clients vary from EU-based individuals and companies and international and multinational clients with a particular focus on Africa, the Middle East, and the USA, particularly in New York, UAE, Nigeria, Angola and South Africa. He advised banks and other commercial entities in particular on high value disputes. Tom also leads our Devonshires Solicitors Basements practice which provides legal and professional advice to developers, private individuals, local authorities and old estates in relation to the construction and opposition of basements and other such additions. His practice ranges from prime location London (such as Belgravia, Mayfair and Knightsbridge) to large commercial basements throughout the UK.
Senior partner Andrew Cowan said “We have strengthened our team with promotions in these key areas, as we continue to focus on our client relationships. Their outstanding individual performances have helped us to meet client demand and I wish both Saghar and Tom every success in their new roles.”
