Liz Turner has swapped lecturing for a return to practising law after joining Langleys Solicitors.
She joins Langleys as a senior associate in the dispute resolution team, specialising in property litigation on behalf of landlords and tenants.
Liz was previously course director at Leeds Law School, part of Leeds Beckett University, where she taught property law, practice and procedure and professional conduct to undergraduate and post-graduate students.
In her new role at Langleys, she will act on a broad range of contentious commercial property matters, advising clients on strategy and dispute management as well as mainstream landlord and tenant matters including dilapidations and lease renewals. She will also provide advice to developers, occupiers and public sector organisations.
Before lecturing at the University, Liz was an associate with Eversheds’ real estate dispute team and Hammonds, now Squire Patton Boggs.
James Henson, partner in the dispute resolution team at York and Lincoln-based Langleys, said: “Liz is an excellent addition to our team.
“She brings considerable experience and expertise in property litigation and strategic dispute management from her time as a senior solicitor with other large commercial practices and as an academic and lecturer. Her knowledge will be a great asset to the landlords and tenants that we advise.”
