Raworths has announced the appointment of Heather Roberts as Legal Director of its growing Commercial Property team.
Heather is a commercial property specialist with more than 20 years’ experience acting for investors, developers, landlords, tenants and banks. Mentioned in the Legal 500 – one of the UK’s leading independently researched guides to the legal profession – she offers a breadth of expertise from investment, development and asset management work to advising SME clients on their portfolio purchases and management. Heather joins from her previous role at McCormicks in Harrogate, bringing with her wealth of knowledge of the local and wider regional market.
Comments Matthew Hill, Head of Commercial Client Services at Raworths: “We welcome Heather, whose specialist commercial property expertise will be a huge asset to our growing team which has benefitted from a raft of new client wins over the past few months. There are major opportunities for us to grow our business in this sector, driven by a stronger than anticipated market post-pandemic and growth more broadly across the region where the demand for space continues to surge. Heather’s appointment is part of a strategic recruitment drive for our commercial team as we look to grow our client portfolio across the region and nationwide.”
Raworths offers exceptional integrated services for both commercial and private clients under one roof, offering a genuinely integrated approach which enables its teams work together on complex issues across its clients’ personal and business affairs. As part of her remit, Heather will also work closely with the wider commercial team including the dispute resolution, employment and corporate & commercial teams.
Adds Heather: “I have been aware of Raworths’ reputation as a legal firm which builds lasting relationships with its clients, and at the heart of that is the unique way the team can draw upon the skills and expertise of their colleagues across disciplines. This approach really appeals to me, and I’m excited to add to the incredible pool of talent here to help grow the commercial property business. The firm proactively supports and nurtures the ongoing development of its team at all levels, and I also hope to play a key role in cultivating the skills of our expanding team going forwards.”
