Corporate Partner, Stephen Levy, led the team advising Peel Group on the acquisition of Orbit Investments (Salford) Limited – the corporate vehicle which owns the Lowry Outlet Mall. Stephen was assisted by senior associate Andy Phillips (Corporate), partners Mike Edge and Rachel Pitman (Real Estate), partner John Cleland and associate Rebecca Wilcock (Finance) and partner Simon Horsfield (Employment).

Stephen commented: "It has been great to act on this material and strategic transaction for Peel. We wish them every success with their plans for the Lowry Outlet Mall."
