Success Continues For Northern Commercial Property Team At Insider Property Industry Awards
The northern commercial property team at Irwin Mitchell has once again won the Insider Property Law Firm of the Year Award.
Held at the Royal Armouries Museum in Leeds, the event recognises those individuals and businesses at the forefront of shaping Yorkshire’s environment and continue to make the region one the UK’s investment hotspots.
With last year’s event cancelled due to the lockdown, the Irwin Mitchell northern transactional commercial property team has retained a title they first scooped in 2019, focusing in on key areas where the firm has made the biggest difference to clients, colleagues and communities.
The judges were most impressed with Irwin Mitchell’s work with Newmarket Lane, a joint venture between Henry Boot Developments and Yorkcourt Properties, on one of the largest regeneration projects of its kind in the UK.
The development of the 200 acre Newmarket Colliery site will secure vital inward investment, creating thousands of new jobs and helping to deliver a thriving local economy.
The two further projects highlighted, included advising Artisan Kirkstall Leeds in relation to its acquisition of Kirkstall Place from Tesco and Leeds City Council and advising Rula Developments on development of a distribution warehouse at Tankersley.
The Artisan development will see the much needed regeneration of the 5.9 acre site, with the creation of 263 houses, including affordable housing and a commercial unit.
Expert Opinion“It’s a proud moment to have retained our title as Property Law Firm of the Year. It’s an opportunity also to congratulate the team who have done so much amazing work for our clients, despite the challenges the last year has presented everyone with.
“There is a success story to tell in the region and we were able to showcase our own unique contribution to the skills, expertise and innovation in the local property sector.
“The projects we are involved in highlight the Irwin Mitchell commitment to our clients and local communities and demonstrate our determination to deliver positive outcomes for the areas in which we live and work.
“Much of this work is vital in creating jobs, driving inward investment and transforming disused spaces into everything from new and affordable homes, to new business and we’re looking forward to building on the achievements recognised by this award in the years ahead.” James Knowles - Partner
