Victoria Armstrong and Lisa Geary are new health property partners at DAC Beachcroft.
DACB hires Victoria from Sintons, where she was a real estate partner. She specialises in public sector property advice for healthcare professionals, NHS bodies, foundation trusts, ambulance trusts, developers, local councils, and educational entities.
Victoria will focus on north-east England and support DACB’s real estate health plan to secure strategic partnerships and boost independent sector work.
DACB hired Lisa from Capsticks, where she was a partner, real estate head, and Leeds location head. She has considerable expertise advising Yorkshire and northern NHS Trusts, primary care providers, and other healthcare groups on all property needs.
Lisa will expand DACB’s regional and national health practice and continue teaching NHS estate managers and board directors. Her legal expertise will also serve the firm’s fast-growing national charity real estate clientele.
Hamza Drabu, partner and Head of Health at DAC Beachcroft, comments, “Healthcare organisations remain under pressure to deliver improved outcomes for the people they serve. As new models of care emerge, and with capital constraints in the NHS, our clients are increasingly seeking advice on real estate issues to ensure that health and care can be provided in world class premises.
“As we continue to invest in our health business to meet our clients’ needs, we are looking forward to seeing Victoria and Lisa unlock the wider opportunities with our health sector colleagues and using their vast understanding of the property sector to contribute to the continued growth of our health property business.”
In the UK and abroad, DACB is the premier strategic, commercial, and regulatory legal counsel to the health and social care sector. At the HealthInvestor Awards 2023, DACB was named ‘Legal Advisor of the Year – Public’ for the third time and ‘Legal Advisor of the Year – Private’ for the second time in three years for its work with public and independent healthcare customers.
