Property Specialist Joins Top 150 National Law Firm

Leading law firm Roythornes Solicitors has announced the appointment of partner and property litigation specialist Nigel Maguire.

Joining from Ashtons Legal Solicitors and holding more than 20 years of experience, Nigel will be working closely with Roythornes’ property teams in the East and West Midlands while the scope of his work and client base is national.

Having acted on nationally significant infrastructure projects and in the property sector for both landlord and tenant, Nigel’s range of industry exposure places him in a position to help clients with matters such as commercial leases, compulsory purchase procedure, enfranchisement, and freehold property.

He said: “I’m proud to be joining Roythornes and contributing to its ambitious growth plans, which caught my attention in the first place. I could see the firms’ vision for the future and I am inspired by the dedication it has to supporting clients on complex industry issues. Above all, I look forward to using my skills to assist real estate clients in securing swift resolutions and the best outcomes for their problems. This means minimising the risks and costs of litigation for both sides of the dispute, something which I am very passionate about.”

Nigel, a solicitor advocate and member of the Property Litigation Association added: “We’re in turbulent economic times and there is no shortage of real estate enquiries. From helping landlords manage tenant defaults to giving early advice on the upcoming further restrictions on the Minimum Energy Efficiency Standard regulations, there are unchartered waters to sail into.”

Vember Mortlock, managing director at Roythornes Solicitors, said: “Having Nigel join the firm has further bolstered our national growth plans and his extensive experience and enthusiasm for the sector make him a great addition to our real estate team. Clients will no doubt feel confident in his ability to support them with whatever issue they’re facing.”
