The last six months has seen a continued rise in demand for the firm's property services across the board.
The Development team has been increasingly busy working with national and regional developers undertaking residential, commercial and mixed use schemes of all shapes and sizes. The Residential Conveyancing team has seen an influx of work as a result of the government's successful "Help to Buy Scheme" as well as a resurgence in the new homes sector, and the Commercial Property team has been active helping investors and occupiers acquire new space rather than simply concentrating on programmes of rationalisation which dominated the recession.
To meet this, a number of lawyers have been recruited with further expansion planned for later on in 2014. Recent joiners include:
- Sarah Webb previously at CP Law in Wokingham. Sarah has considerable experience in dealing with a range of development matters - acting for clients, particularly house builders operating throughout the Thames Valley. She will work closely with partners Derek Ching and William Nassau-Lake in the Development team drawing up conditional contracts for new sites, representing developers taking options and as well as advising landowners on a range of projects affecting disposal of landholdings to developers.
- Amie Kelsall from Darbys in Oxford who joins the Commercial Property team dealing principally with commercial property investments as well as landlord and tenant work. Her clients include a broad range of corporate occupiers as well as investors looking to manage and expand their portfolios.
- Melissa Coleman, a Chartered Legal Executive who arrives from Withy King in Oxford to join the Residential Conveyancing team.
Nick Carter Head of the Property Service at Boyes Turner said:
"The recruitment of Sarah, Amie and Melissa into our team reflects the commitment to growing our already successful property practice - which continues to be ranked as the region's leading team of its type. It allows us to further expand our client base and broaden the services we provide. I am particularly pleased with the quality of the lawyers that have joined us which reinforces our ability to provide the highest levels of service."
