What a way to end the week! After consistently working on some of the region’s biggest real estate deals, we’ve been crowned Property Law Firm of the Year at the 2019 Insider North East Property Awards. It was the second time we have won the prestigious award in three years.
Judges commented on our impressive work over the last 12 months, which has included advising on the 1.75-acre Newgate Centre redevelopment, Tynexe Commercial’s 175,000 sqft office development, and the 20 year lease agreement for Tor Coatings’ new head office at Follingsby Park, Gateshead.
It was also a big night for some of our clients and contacts, particularly McAleer and Rushe – the developers behind the Newgate Centre regeneration, which picked up Commercial Development of the Year. Spanish City, Whitley Bay’s landmark redevelopment, was also recognised.
Two time winners
Jonathan Combe, partner and head of real estate, said: “We are thrilled and delighted to have won this award for the second time.
“We’ve had a very successful year and have worked on some huge deals inside and outside the region, and this award recognises the growth and development of our team.
“Our clients have access to the largest team of commercial property lawyers in the North East, with the widest breadth of expertise, including lawyers who are dedicated to property development, finance, social housing and disputes.
“We also have rural property experts in our team, which together means we can provide high quality specialist advice on virtually any real estate matter and I am incredibly proud of what our team has achieved.”
Fantastic clients and contacts
“We were also absolutely delighted to see our longstanding client McAleer & Rushe also recognised at these awards and I would like to extend a huge thank you to all our clients and also our business partners, whose continued support means everything to us.”
