MLP Law prepares for a prosperous new year with the hire of a new Legal Director and Commercial Property Partner

Mark Turner will join the Commercial Litigation and Dispute Resolution team, and John Lomax, as Commercial Property Partner

Corporate, commercial and private law firm, MLP Law, is preparing for a prosperous new year with the appointment of two new senior lawyers.

The boutique law firm has appointed John Lomax as Commercial Property Partner and Mark Turner as Legal Director in the Commercial Litigation and Dispute Resolution team. The new additions bolster MLP’s full-service capability and expand its areas of specialism into private client work, complementing its already strong corporate and commercial B2B offering.
John Lomax has more than 30 years’ experience in commercial property law, and specialises in a variety of commercial property and land matters, including acting on commercial sales and purchases, landlord and tenant matters, all aspects of commercial leases, acquisitions and disposals for landlord and tenants, extensions, surrenders of leases, reversionary leases, and overriding leases.

Mark Turner has 25 years’ experience specialising in litigation and disputes after training in the Birmingham office of international firm, DLA Piper. He has been based in the North West since 2004 and practised at commercial firms in Manchester, Cheshire and Staffordshire. His role will involve advising and assisting clients in a variety of disputes ranging from debt collection claims to complex high value construction and probate claims.

MLP Law owner and director, Stephen Attree, said: “We’re pleased to be in a position to add to our senior team as we enter the new year, with two new hires that will add almost 60 years’ worth of legal expertise to the team. This will enable us to provide our clients with even more value and access to senior legal support – something which many other firms do not provide.

“John is a fantastic lawyer with a real variety of experience which will be invaluable to the team, including finance work for borrowers and lenders in retail and care industries. Mark is an extremely experienced and talented solicitor and taking him on as a Legal Director will make an excellent addition to our expanding Commercial Litigation and Dispute Resolution team, boosting our full-service capability, and growing our areas of specialism into private client work, as well as our existing corporate and commercial B2B offering.”

Commenting on his appointment, Mark Turner said: “MLP already offers high quality practical and commercial advice to its clients and I am excited to be joining the firm as it continues to grow the commercial litigation offering. As part of my role within the practice, I hope to continue to establish MLP as a leading dispute resolution advisor in the area.”

Mark’s appointment will continue to bolster the firm’s reputation which has been built on committed advice for growing and entrepreneurial businesses in the region.

Commenting on his appointment, John Lomax said: “It’s an exciting time to be starting in this role, as the commercial property market experiences a big change. The pandemic provides an opportunity for many to diversify and pivot their property portfolio. While many businesses question their high street and commercial office footprint, a significant number are growing their logistics channels requiring large properties and spaces out of town to support the move to online.”

MLP’s Altrincham HQ is supported by further offices in Liverpool, Lymm and Media City. It is a full-service firm that provides a range of legal services to commercial and private clients in the North West.

The firm has also taken the downtime of lockdown restrictions to refurbish its Lymm office in preparation to welcome staff and clients back for face-to-face meetings, when restrictions allow.
