Leading Cheshire law firm, SAS Daniels LLP, has promoted four Property specialists across the North West as it continues to grow the business in 2019.
The full-service firm which has offices across the North West and Greater Manchester has promoted two senior associates to Partner and two solicitors to Senior Associate.
James Goddard has been made Partner at its Chester office following the significant role he has played in growing the firm’s agricultural law offering since joining in 2012, including being joint head of its dedicated agricultural law practice. During his time working in the region, James has also launched the Cheshire division of the Agricultural Law Association.
Scott Tams has also been promoted to Partner in the Commercial Property team and will be based predominantly at the firm’s Stockport office.
Scott, who qualified in 2004 and joined SAS Daniels in 2016, has vast property experience including industrial estate development, warehouse sales and acquisitions, and acquisitions for pension funds.
Meanwhile, two solicitors at its Macclesfield office have been promoted to Senior Associate. Steven Percy and Victoria Bury, based in the Commercial Property team and Residential Property team respectively, will take up their new positions with immediate effect.
Steven joined SAS Daniels as a trainee in 2012 and since then has rapidly progressed, acting for investors, landowners and developers on a wide range of commercial property matters. He is also an active member of the firm’s Employee Forum and is a Trustee on the board for Cheshire-based Everybody Sport and Recreation Trust.
Victoria started at SAS Daniels in 2014 and has 17 years’ experience in residential conveyancing. She is also heavily involved in the firm’s mentoring scheme, helping to continually train team members and trainee solicitors as part of the firm’s focus on learning and development.
Jeremy Orrell, Managing Partner at SAS Daniels, said: “We’re delighted to be starting off the New Year with these four promotions in place. Each of them has shown huge dedication to the firm and have gone above and beyond to ensure the business grows in line with our business plan.”
