Award winning law firm Jacksons, has boosted one of its property departments by appointing a residential conveyancing expert to head up its new build team in Newcastle.
Solicitor, Isabelle Edmondson joins Jacksons after spending three years with a Scottish law firm in the outskirts of Edinburgh.
Originally from Consett, Isabelle left the North East to attend Dundee University where she gained a Law Degree and completed a Diploma in Legal Practice (equivalent to Legal Practice Course in England).
Isabelle’s appointment follows the success of the firm’s new build team in Jacksons’ Tees Valley office. Associate Solicitor, Jonathan Wall is head of department and supported by a sub team manager, one paralegal, an experienced secretary and two apprentices .The team’s hard work and reputation was acknowledged at this year’s Northern Law Awards when they were shortlisted for Property Team of the Year (Residential).
Jonathan has, over the last 18 months, built a strong relationship with key individuals from some of the UK’s major housebuilders, and due to the high service delivered to our clients this has resulted in Jacksons being their preferred purchaser’s solicitor firm. In the period of January 2018 to January 2019 alone, the team saw an increase in file inceptions by 200%, year on year.
Senior Partner Geoff Skeoch said, “We are delighted to welcome Isabelle to Jacksons. It has been interesting to watch the new build team grow over the last year and to see what Jonathan and his colleagues have achieved in the Tees Valley and surrounding area. I have no doubt Isabelle will have the same success in the North of the region as she develops her network of contacts and clients”.
Isabelle said, “It was always my intention to come home to the North East after University and having gained some legal experience. I was immediately attracted to the quality of the work being done by the team at Jacksons and their attention to high standards of client care. I’m very excited about what the future holds for me and the new build team at Jacksons.”
Jacksons Law firm is one of the North East’s longest established law firms and has been practising in the Tees Valley for over 140 years. Operating from its head office in Stockton on Tees, and an office in Newcastle upon Tyne, it is well placed to assist clients across the region on a wide range of business and personal legal advice.
