Maples Teesdale expands leading client practice with new partner hire

Maples Teesdale announce the arrival of new partner, hotel expert Tim Dodd.

Tim will be joining Maples Teesdale from Katten Muchin Rosenman, and specialises in hotels transactions, acting for major international hotel operator companies, private and institutional hotel owners/franchisees, property companies, multinational organisations, developers, institutional investors, and governmental bodies. As well as his time in private practice Tim has also spent a significant amount of his legal career working as in-house counsel for hotel operator brands.

Tim will enhance the firm’s offering with his depth of knowledge and extensive experience and represents a further strengthening of what the firm offers to clients.

Tim joining Maples Teesdale is part of the firm’s commitment to being the UK’s leading commercial real estate law specialists.

Chris Wilkinson, managing partner at Maples Teesdale, said “We are delighted to welcome Tim into the partnership.  Following the recent promotion of Jo Preece as a construction partner and Chris Xitsas as a commercial real estate partner, this hire adds significant breadth to our ever-growing real estate capacity and enhances our partner-led service and commitment to our clients.  We look forward to welcoming Tim into the team.”
