Madgwicks Lawyers has boosted its property, retail leasing, and telecommunications team with the appointment of a seasoned lawyer.
Deborah Mann has joined the Melbourne firm as its newest special counsel, adding more than 30 years’ experience in the property industry.

Mann is an expert in preparing, reviewing, and advising on all lease documentation, variations, surrenders, default notices, and transfers of lease. Her experience extends to telecommunications leasing, including preparing licences and leases, the firm said.
She is also a specialist in property law, including in advising on property transactions such as old law conversions, road closures, adverse possession, subdivisions and consolidations, registrations and advice regarding easements and other property, restrictions, NICO transfers, compulsory acquisition, and licences, the firm said.
Mann brings “enormous in-depth knowledge and acumen” as well as “insights and commerciality” to the property team, said Laurance Davis, partner and head of the property department of the firm.
