Macclesfield Express - - BUSINESS SME BUSINESS TIPS -

LAW firm SAS Daniels, which has a base in Mac­cles­field, has re­cruited five new lawyers.

Neil Pow­ell has joined as a part­ner in the com­mer­cial prop­erty team, along with so­lic­i­tor Emily Clarke and as­so­ciate solic­i­tors Ste­wart Smith and Scott Tams.

Amy Dick­ens, also an as­so­ciate so­lic­i­tor, has joined the res­i­den­tial prop­erty team, which has seen a 100 per cent in­crease in cases in the last year.

New part­ner Neil brings with him 30 years of com­mer­cial prop­erty ex­pe­ri­ence, spe­cial­is­ing in re­gen­er­a­tion and de­vel­op­ment in both the pri­vate and pub­lic sec­tor.

He has acted for lo­cal govern­ment in education and retail, and, in his new role, will sup­port the grow­ing com­mer­cial prop­erty team, and im­prove de­vel­op­ment and re­gen­er­a­tion ser­vices.

He will cover the firm’s of­fices in Mac­cles­field, Ch­ester and Con­gle­ton, while based at the Stock­port of­fice.

Mean­while, new so­lic­i­tor Emily joined SAS Daniels from DWF in Au­gust on a tem­po­rary ba­sis to help sup­port a large in­crease in prop­erty deals, and has now taken a per­ma­nent role at the com­pany.

As­so­ciate so­lic­i­tor Ste­wart has 23 years of com­mer­cial prop­erty ex­pe­ri­ence and spe­cialises in the re­new­able en­ergy sec­tor.

He pre­vi­ously led the le­gal team at AMEC Wind En­ergy and worked on re­new­able en­ergy schemes at law firm, MFG, and will now be based at SAS Daniels’ Ch­ester of­fice.

Fel­low as­so­ciate so­lic­i­tor Scott has joined SAS Daniels from Field­ings Porter, and Amy from Bir­chall Black­burn Law, and will both work in the prop­erty team at the firm’s Stock­port of­fice.

James Clarke, part­ner and head of the com­mer­cial prop­erty team at SAS Daniels, said: “We’re de­lighted to have made such strong and ex­pe­ri­enced hires in the com­mer­cial and res­i­den­tial prop­erty teams.

“Both Neil and Ste­wart bring ex­pe­ri­ence of the pub­lic sec­tor and en­ergy ser­vice ar­eas and Emily has al­ready proved her worth over the last few months and is now an in­te­gral part of the team, de­liv­er­ing sound ad­vice for clients.

“The prop­erty team is cur­rently in a pe­riod of rapid growth, with a num­ber of new clients and cases. Th­ese five new ap­point­ments will not only help us sup­port th­ese new clients but also al­low us to ad­dress new mar­kets.”
