Experienced property lawyer, Adrian Hill, joins Square One Law
As commercial law firm, Square One Law continues to develop and grow, senior partner, Ian Gilthorpe is delighted to announce that experienced property lawyer, Adrian Hill has decided to join the firm and will be joint head of the property team with Barney Frith.
“This is a great appointment for the business,” said Ian Gilthorpe, “Adrian has a proven track record of delivering and project managing complicated development projects as well as managing a team of lawyers delivering focused and proactive asset management services on large property portfolios for private sector investors. I worked with him previously at Eversheds and Muckle and know he is excellent at building client relationships and delivering a high quality service, so will fit in well with our culture.”
Adrian’s industry knowledge and expertise has been built over 30 years. He was head of the real estate team in Eversheds, Leeds working with senior management and the national finance team looking at resource, utilisation, financial models, structure, technical delivery, IT innovative services, client satisfaction and profitability. He has all the skills to deliver a broad range of projects and services in a way that will deliver to the client at a value for money price with excellent service delivery.
Adrian Hill said, “I’m at a stage in my career where I want to join and be actively engaged in a business that allows me to do what I do best. What I think clients are looking for, is to have an experienced lawyer they can trust, who understands their sector and can help deliver value for money solutions to suit their business needs, rather than what many law firms do in the current market – retro-fit their own resources and cost model to how they deliver service rather than listen to the client and understand what the client actually wants.
“I admire that Square One Law is challenging the status quo in the legal marketplace and their client base is very impressive. I have immediately been struck by the energy and positivity of the people and the way everyone is totally focussed on the firm’s clients.”
Barney Frith commented: “Adrian has an excellent reputation in the marketplace and has acted for major industry players including Muse, Langtree, Urban Splash, Taylor Wimpy, UK Land Estates, Rushbond plc, Igloo, IVG and Northumberland Estates. His skill set and client relationships will add another dimension to our team and we’re all looking forward to working with him.”
Adrian concluded: “Square One Law is at an interesting stage of its development as it now looks to scale up. The challenging marketplace means all businesses need a clear strategy, strong leadership and focus on customer demands. I’m looking forward to being part of the team who will help the firm develop and continue to act for leading businesses in the region and nationally.”
