Roythornes grows Midlands offering with Birmingham expansion

Top 150 law firm Roythornes Solicitors has boosted its investment in the UK’s second city with new premises for its Birmingham office and two new senior hires for its experienced and established real estate team.

In its fourth move in the city since opening the office in February 2020 due to consistent and substantial growth, Roythornes will relocate from its current office to 1 Newhall Street in Spring 2022. This move is the next stage of strategic growth for Roythornes and allows the firm to build on the solid foundations laid down two years ago.

The firm also welcomes two new faces to its growing real estate team. Abdul Zaheed, who has more than 18 years of experience as a qualified real estate solicitor, has been appointed as a partner and Charlotte Nutting joins the team as a senior associate after working at two large regional firms in Shropshire.

Abdul said: “I was impressed with the firm’s substantial growth and Roythornes’ commitment to its real estate practice and Birmingham. I have always been passionate about providing exceptional service to clients and adding real value to their goals so I’m looking forward to establishing and growing this at Roythornes.”

Charlotte said: “I hope to play an active part in Roythornes’ expansion and especially in the real estate sector in the Birmingham legal market. With the high quality of work that is on offer at the firm and the calibre of clients it attracts, I hope to expand my technical knowledge and become a leader in the field through a long and successful career.”

Bhavesh Amlani, partner and national head of real estate at Roythornes, said: “We’ve seen the real estate team go from strength to strength and our focus is to continue to build our reputation and brand as we embark on our ambitious expansion plans.”

“We’re proud to act for many of the country’s largest housebuilders as well as landowners, property owners, developers, registered providers and tenants. We’re incredibly excited to welcome Abdul and Charlotte to the team, with their vast knowledge and experience in the sector.

Vember Mortlock, managing director, added: “This exciting expansion furthers our commitment to Birmingham as a city, and to its dynamic real estate market. This is an important area of growth for us and we’re looking forward to continuing our work across the West Midlands, serving both longstanding and new clients.”
