Salisbury, Wiltshire United Kingdom (PressExposure) February 16, 2012 -- Wiltshire, Hampshire Dorset based solicitors, Bonallack and Bishop, today announced the recruitment of a brand-new member of their specialist lease extension team. Solicitor, Sam Davies, who joined the firm's rapidly expanding lease extension team this week, is a dedicated specialist - undertaking purely lease extension, collective enfranchisement and right to manage company work. Bonallack and Bishop themselves are a fast growing law firm, committed to providing specialist niche services throughout England and Wales, and act for large freehold companies as well as individual leaseholders helping them to extend their leases.
Bonallack and Bishop senior partner, Tim Bishop, commented; "Many UK law firms are going through a really difficult time following the recession. It's clear, following the recent introduction of the Legal Services Act, that many of the services that high Street firms have traditionally relied on to provide much of their income, such as residential conveyancing and straightforward wills, will be targeted by the new corporate entrants into the market, such as Which. To guard against that, this firm's clear strategy is to develop specialist niches - where we don't just act for clients locally, but can act for business and private clients throughout England and Wales. Whilst it's clear that consumers still prefer to have straightforward matters like wills dealt with by local solicitors, the Internet has opened up the market for specialist legal services - few if any of our lease extension clients are local - they come from all over the country and are quite happy with to get specialist legal advice and to communicate using e-mail, phone and, if necessary, Skype video conferencing."
"We are particularly excited to have recruited such a specialist in Sam, who has previously concentrated on lease extension work for law firms in the Brighton area - a hotbed for lease extension and collective enfranchisement work. I have no doubt she will prove to be a huge asset to our team and will play an invaluable role in achieving the firms target, which is trebling the amount of lease extension work we do for tenants within the next three years".
