Clare joins commercial property team at Harrison Drury

North West law firm Harrison Drury has grown its commercial property team with the appointment of senior associate Clare Davey.

Clare, who joins the firm from Progression Solicitors in Lancaster, will be based at Harrison Drury’s Garstang office.

She will support the firm’s commercial property team working on a range of commercial property services as well as providing corporate support on company sales and commercial refinancing. Clare has extensive experience in landlord and tenant matters and dealing with leasehold transactions as well as assisting clients in the sale and purchase of commercial property.

With a particular interest in hospitality and leisure, a sector in which Harrison Drury has a significant client base, Clare enjoys working with lenders and dealing with refinancing to “get deals done”.

Simon England, head of Harrison Drury’s commercial property team, said: “Growing each of our regional offices with commercial property specialists is key to the expansion of our firm-wide team. Clare will make a great contribution to the Garstang office and brings to the team valuable commercial experience and helpful local knowledge. As a senior associate, she will also work closely with the other teams covering the firm’s commercial services.”

Clare said: “I look forward to being part of Harrison Drury’s Garstang team. My new role offers a great opportunity to expand my skills and experience, working across a wider scope of commercial work and with a greater range of larger organisations. Harrison Drury has a strong and well-regarded commercial property team in the region, and I was particularly drawn by the firm’s holistic approach to serving clients. I have felt part of the team from the day I joined.”

Clare’s appointment brings Harrison Drury’s commercial team to 23 working across its five offices, delivering a wide range of commercial property and property litigation services to businesses and individuals in the North West.
