BHP Law expands conveyancing division

North East law firm BHP Law has added five new members of staff to its conveyancing team to service demand.

The firm, which operates Newcastle, Durham, and Teesside offices, now has a team of 23 dedicated to the sale of residential property, lead by partner Sally Hare.

Solicitor Jo Anderson, chartered legal executive Brian Tully and paralegal Lucy Fenwick are all based at the firm’s Teesside office in Stockton and supported by new administrators Caroline Evans and Amanda McCabe.

Jo and Brian have both joined from another Teesside law firm, although for Brian the move marks his return to BHP Law after a three-year gap.

Previously legal director for house builders McLean Homes North East and George Wimpey North Yorkshire, Brian specialises in dealing with new build properties.

He said: “House builders are cautiously optimistic after a difficult period of recession with new sites coming on stream. A buoyant new build element is essential in stimulating the property market as a whole.”

Jo, who started her career in matrimonial law before specialising in conveyancing, added: “All the signs are there for promising growth in the market.”

Lucy, who went to Richmond School and studied a classics degree at the University of London and legal qualifications in York, has joined from a firm in York.

Sally Hare said: “Jo, Brian and Lucy are great new additions to our team and have stepped straight into high caseloads.

“We had an exceptionally good January and are well on target in February as well, which is fantastic, with a lot of work coming from clients to whom we’ve been recommended.”
