Law firm SAS Daniels LLP has increased its specialist offering by appointing one of the region’s leading advisors in property law.
Specialist property lawyer Andrew Clark, has joined the firm after spending 37 years with Chester-based Steggles Solicitors. He has more than 20 years experience post qualification experience as a Licensed Conveyancer and brings with him a solid market knowledge and a reputation as one of Cheshire’s leading property lawyers specialising in residential and commercial property work as well as landlord and tenant matters.
Commenting on the current shape of the property market, Andrew said: “2010 has been a difficult year for the property market. Commercially, the lack of money in the economy has deflated property and rental values and demand has fallen away at all levels.”
“Equally however, it has been a playground for those with the cash and the necessary status requirements to satisfy the lending criteria of the banks. For the opportunistic entrepreneur with the right product, it has been a perfect time to grow a business, for example through the opening of new retail outlets in leased property.
“As with this year, 2011 will still present a muddled picture, but there are positive signs – I don’t expect to see any further long-term reduction in property values. It should mean a more active market – an exciting time for property experts, and I look forward to seeing the developments in the market at SAS Daniels.”
The Managing partner at SAS Daniels LLP, said: “Andrew’s appointment is the latest in a string of developments designed to boost the growth of specialist expertise within SAS Daniels.
“Great firms are based on great people and we are constantly striving to boost our offering to the market.”
