Law firm in hiring spree
Regional solicitor Primas Law has strengthened its Manchester-based real estate team with a raft of appointments.
Property lawyers Nataliya Healey, Awais Alam and Tim Dillon have all joined the firm. Lauren Steel and Sarah Fielding have been recruited as trainee solicitors, while Victoria Shaw has joined the executive support team.
Healey, who has joined as a senior associate, previously worked at Addleshaw Goddard and Croftons, while Alam has held roles at Hill Dickinson, Squire Patton Boggs and DWF. Dillon worked for a major firm in Vancouver.
Simon Baxter, head of real estate at Primas Law, said: “We’ve seen major growth across the real estate side of our business in the last 12-months.
“This increase is coming from a variety of sectors within the property market, but our niche expertise in the development sector has seen exceptional growth.
“Nataliya, Awais and Tim are experienced lawyers and their recruitment allows us to meet the demand we’re seeing now, whilst maintaining the firm’s commitment to quality. We’re also building for the future with our investment in new trainees.”
There are now eight staff based full-time in the real estate team at Primas Law’s Chancery Place office. Primas, which focuses purely on property, corporate and commercial work, also has offices in Stockton Heath and London.
