Savage Silk expands commercial team with recruitment of experienced commercial property specialist

Joe Brolly, senior associate

Savage Silk has continued to grow its commercial team with the appointment of Joe Brolly as senior associate in its commercial property department.

With extensive experience in commercial property, with a particular specialism in secured lending working with banks and institutions, Joe has achieved rapid progress in his career over the past eight years.

Originally from County Durham, Joe has, to date, spent his legal career with Newcastle law firms, starting as a paralegal eight years ago, and after qualifying as a solicitor progressing to associate status.

Joe joins Savage Silk, which has offices in Newcastle and Stockton-on-Tees, having acted for property investors, occupiers, banks and SME clients as well as for landowners and developers on a variety of commercial matters.

Joe’s recruitment expands Savage Silk’s commercial team, which has grown from three to eleven people in three years. His experience will support Savage Silk’s strategy to enhance its position in the secured lending market, bringing a greater breadth of expertise across the team.

Joe Brolly said: “Savage Silk has a positive and growing reputation in the commercial market, and I am looking forward to contributing to its increasing pipeline of work in the property sector. I have built a strong network of clients and contacts in the commercial property market in the North East and across the UK and I am keen to support the growth of the practice.”

Paul Earnshaw, Head of Commercial Property at Savage Silk, said: “Joe is building a strong track record in the commercial property sector, and I am very pleased we have been able to attract him to Savage Silk.

“His experience, particularly in the field of secured lending will support our strategy, which includes securing positions on bank and lending institute panels as preferred solicitors for a wider range of transactions.”
