London – Duff & Phelps, the global advisor that protects, restores and maximizes value for clients, today announced that James Liddiment has joined the firm’s London office as a managing director in its Real Estate Advisory Group (REAG).

Liddiment is a Chartered Surveyor and specializes in providing valuation and strategic advice to banks, building societies and funders under a variety of scenarios, including secured lending, asset management, divestment and in distressed situations.

Mike Weaver, Head of Valuation Advisory Services in EMEA at Duff & Phelps, said: “We look forward to welcoming James to the team. He brings valuable real estate experience to Duff & Phelps with a focus on secured lending valuation, review and restructuring. James will help to bolster our REAG practice outside of the U.S., working alongside myself, John Slade and Mark Whittingham who joined earlier this month. The appointment of James and Mark reaffirms our commitment to our fast-growing real estate practice and strengthens our team in the UK.”

Liddiment joins Duff & Phelps from Eddisons, a UK based firm of Chartered Surveyors, where he was the director responsible for the London commercial real estate valuation team. He joins five former colleagues from Eddisons who became members of our team earlier this year to establish Duff & Phelps REAG practice in Manchester, including Managing Director Paul Greenhalgh, and Directors David Cran and Phil Kelly.
