Property development specialist, Lois McCartan has joined Doncaster law firm, Atherton Godfrey LLP.
Lois, who qualified as a solicitor in 2015 has significant experience across all aspects of property development, including POS/management agreements and transfer, site set ups and section agreements.
Sarah Naylor, partner and head of commercial and property, commented on the appointment: “We are delighted to welcome Lois to the firm. Lois brings a wealth of experience that will really complement the work of our property development team.
“There is a huge amount of investment right across the Yorkshire and Humber region; Lois joins us at a particularly exciting time in the sector.”
Lois, who graduated with a BA Hons in Criminology, studied law while working as a Witness Care Officer for the Crown Prosecution Service.
Lois began her legal career with a West Yorkshire firm which specialised in construction, commercial and corporate law.
Since qualifying, Lois has worked in property development and has spent the past several years working with a transatlantic law firm servicing corporate, individual and non-profit clients throughout the UK and USA.
Lois said: “This is an exciting move for me. I was at a point where I felt it was time to broaden my experience. From there it was really a case of looking for a firm that had both a significant presence in the South Yorkshire area but also felt like somewhere I could be part of a team and help grow the business.
“It was clear from the first conversation with Sarah and Gareth Giles, who manages the property development team, that Atherton Godfrey would tick both of those boxes.”
