Head of real estate says: “Our niche expertise in the development sector has seen exceptional growth.”
A boutique north west law firm has strengthened its Manchester-based real estate team with a flurry of new appointments.
Primas Law has taken on property lawyers Nataliya Healey, Awais Alam and Tim Dillon.
Lauren Steel and Sarah Fielding have been recruited as trainee solicitors, while Victoria Shaw has joined the executive support team.
Simon Baxter, head of real estate at Primas Law, said: “We’ve seen major growth across the real estate side of our business in the last 12-months.
“This increase is coming from a variety of sectors within the property market, but our niche expertise in the development sector has seen exceptional growth.
“Nataliya, Awais and Tim are experienced lawyers and their recruitment allows us to meet the demand we’re seeing now, whilst maintaining the firm’s commitment to quality. We’re also building for the future with our investment in new trainees.”
Nataliya joins Primas Law as a senior associate after working at Addleshaw Goddard, and latterly having spent more than three years with Croftons Solicitors in Manchester.
Solicitor Awais joins the firm after previous roles with Hill Dickinson, Squire Patton Boggs and DWF.
Tim also joins as a solicitor after a spell working for a major law firm in Vancouver, Canada.
There are now eight staff based full-time in the real estate team at Primas Law’s Manchester office. The firm also has offices in Cheshire and London. It focuses purely on real estate, corporate and commercial work.
The firm advises a wide range of clients in the property sector including landlords and tenants, developers, funders, property investors and housing associations.
