An experienced property lawyer has been promoted to branch manager at the Chapel Allerton office of Ison Harrison, bolstering the team and bringing specialist commercial property expertise to the area.
Geraldine Levison will head up the all-female team of four at Chapel Allerton with the Leeds-headquartered law firm. She has 16 years’ experience of commercial and residential property matters and moved to the Chapel Allerton branch in 2017, after spending three years at the firm’s city centre head office.
Geraldine specialises in acquisitions, disposals and leasebacks for both retail outlets and industrial offices. She is also highly experienced in dealing with landlord and tenant issues, commercial re-financing and transfer of leasehold interests.
Geraldine brings a wealth of commercial property experience to the team and will work closely with her colleagues at the Chapel Allerton branch as well as property experts across the firm’s 13 Yorkshire offices. The Chapel Allerton branch is also the only all-female office within the Ison Harrison branch network.
Commenting on her promotion, Geraldine said: “I’m looking forward to leading the talented team at Chapel Allerton having worked together so successfully for the past two years. As a popular area in which to live and work, Chapel Allerton and the surrounding area continues to thrive and there is high demand for property expertise in particular.
“Chapel Allerton remains one of the most desirable and sought after residential and commercial areas in Leeds and Ison Harrison’s ideally placed Harrogate Road branch has been one of the firm’s busiest branches outside of the city centre, specialising in residential conveyancing, family law and wills and probate.
“The team at Chapel Allerton collectively has over 50 years of legal expertise and is proud to be an integral part of the local community, providing the same first class service for which we are renowned across West Yorkshire and beyond.”
The Chapel Allerton office of Ison Harrison provides a full range of legal services for both business and private clients ranging from residential conveyancing, family and probate matters to personal injury and debt recovery.
The branch also supports local community events in Chapel Allerton such as the annual Chapel Allerton Arts Festival and is looking to build relationships with women’s charities in the area.
