North West law firm bolsters commercial property team
25th August, 2011
A NORTH West law firm has bolstered its commercial property team despite ongoing uncertainty in the some parts of the regional market. Chester and Manchester-based Aaron & Partners has hired real estate specialist Emma McGlinchey as a partner in its commercial property team.
Emma was previously a senior associate in the Manchester office of Gateley. Aaron & Partners chief executive Andy Duxbury believes Emma’s arrival represents a major coup. He said: “The fact that Emma has decided to join us strongly demonstrates our growing stature and ambition in the commercial property sector.
“She brings with her a wealth of expertise in a field that is at the core of our commercial offering to businesses across the region, and I am sure she will be an asset to the practice and our clients. “While some sectors of the commercial property market are continuing to have a tough time, others are holding up well and Emma’s appointment will help us to secure a bigger share of the work that is out there.”
Emma, who has lived in Hoole, Chester, for more than 15 years, has been a real estate specialist for more than a decade. She has acted for a wide range of clients including a discount supermarket chain, office owners and occupiers, a luxury self-catering holiday park operator as well as landowners disposing of sites for development.
She joins Aaron & Partners’ flourishing commercial property team, which advises on sales, purchases, leases and other land transactions. Emma said: “Aaron & Partners is a growing law firm with a fantastic reputation across the region. “To join the firm as a partner is an honour and I am looking forward to playing my part in shaping the future direction of the firm.”
Aaron & Partners, Cheshire’s largest commercial law firm, employs 100 people in total. In addition to its full-service commercial offering, it also runs thriving matrimonial, wills, trusts and tax departments.
