The expertise of Keebles’ commercial property department – one of the largest in the region – has been further bolstered with the appointment of a new partner.

Paul Russell’s experience spans high-value residential cases, business and residential leases, leasehold extensions and property finance. He is also adept in property taxation, investor advice and advising banks on security for loans.

The 25-strong team, which includes five partners, is commissioned by clients including Harworth Group, Coalfields Regeneration Trust, St. Pauls Developments PLC and Crossbow Investments.

Richard Smith, head of Keebles’ commercial property department, said: “Paul’s strong track record and breadth and depth of experience highly complement our growing client portfolio. He joins us at a formative period in the firm’s development and we wish him every success.”

Commented Paul: “Keebles’ commercial property department has developed an enviable client portfolio and earned a well-deserved reputation as one of the most highly regarded in Yorkshire. I’m looking forward to being part of its future growth.”
The department’s ongoing expansion has been fuelled by seven new appointments across the last ten months.
