Yorkshire law firm Lupton Fawcett LLP has promoted Adam Wilkinson to the role of head of commercial property.
Wilkinson joined the firm in September 2020 as commercial property partner and has over 12 years’ experience across all aspects of commercial property law, with a particular focus on the development, strategic land and retail sectors.
His promotion comes as Lupton Fawcett embarks on a new phase of development, having recently announced the relocation of its Leeds office to the prestigious 2 The Embankment building in the city’s southern professional quarter.
In his new role, Wilkinson will lead the firm’s commercial property team in meeting the needs of existing regional and national clients and attracting new business.
He said: “I’m delighted to have the opportunity to take our commercial property offering to the next stage of its growth.
“We have an excellent team made up of fantastic lawyers across our offices in Leeds, Sheffield and York and I’m proud to work with them.
“We’ve been recognised in recent years for punching above our weight in terms of the work we do and I’m looking forward to continuing to build the team and to demonstrating the quality of our services to more businesses across the region and beyond.”
Lupton Fawcett managing partner James Richardson said: “The appointment of Adam as our head of commercial property reflects both his deep knowledge and experience of this field of law and his drive to deliver the very best outcomes for clients.
“I’m very pleased to welcome him as part of our senior team.”
