Partner Tom Warrender takes a look at the firm’s involvement in the Northampton business community.
Tom is head of the Commercial Property and Housing Teams at Wilson Browne Solicitors, both of which are recognised by the Legal 500 – the “Who’s Who” of the legal profession. Tom first moved to the Northampton area when he came to study Law at the University here and comments:
Having studied here, I am immensely proud of the firms work in Northampton and the fact that we can trace our roots in the county back almost 200 years. Also, my fellow Partner Ika Částka is currently President of Northamptonshire Law Society, a voluntary organisation providing a focal point for solicitors in the county.
In terms of the work conducted by Tom’s teams in Northampton, that can vary from anything like multi-million-pound land acquisition and development deals (both residential and commercial), leases of pubs, offices, warehouses (and more!), acting for well-established national companies through to brand new start-ups.
Whilst we act on a number of transactions in the town, 2 deals that particularly stand out for Tom are:-
-The multi-million-pound purchase of part of the former cattle market auction site at Brackmills and subsequent redevelopment of a new central logistics hub for logistics company DACHSER; and
-Acting on the land acquisition, development and subsequent shared ownership sales of various sites in Northampton for EMH Housing & Regeneration Limited.
We are delighted with the timely legal advice and support that we have received during this large transaction, which helped the project run through smoothly.
Company Secretary & UK Finance & Administration Manager at DACHSER, Susan Rowley adds…
The service we received from the Commercial Property team at Wilson Browne has been exemplary and we would certainly use their services again.
On the latest housing scheme we acted on, Jim Patman, Executive Director, Development, EMH Group said
We were delighted with the work Tom and Emma have conducted on our behalf in relation to this site. For us, communication is key, and it was great to work in partnership with Tom and Emma keeping us informed every step of the way.
Tom’s teams work hand in hand with Wilson Browne’s wider commercial teams: A recent example being a deal comprising the share sale of one business, the sale of commercial premises owned by another company, and the sale by a pension fund of a third property, all required to be completed simultaneously by the parties. Working closely with Andrew Kerr, the Partner heading up our Corporate Commercial Team, we were able to ensure that the various complexities of the deals were dealt with swiftly and that the deal was completed in accordance with the client’s requirements.
