Vincents appoints solicitor Luke Robinson

Vincents Solicitors has appointed solicitor Luke Robinson to its commercial and residential property team.

Luke (pictured right) joins the firm from Blackhurst Budd in Blackpool. He will be based at Vincents’ Lytham office in Jubilee House, and his arrival forms part of the growth strategy for the area, serving homeowners, investors and developers across the local market.

Though there was a brief slowdown in sales and acquisitions during the early part of the lockdown, pent up demand and the new Stamp Duty holiday have meant a significant increase in business of almost 50% compared to the same time last year, since restrictions were eased towards the end of May.  

The property team at Vincents remained fully active throughout lockdown, with most fee earners working from home.

Craig Aikman, head of commercial and residential property, (pictured left) said: "Continuing to service our clients as usual throughout lockdown allowed us to complete ongoing and planned transactions, and pick up additional work referred to us by estate agents and financial advisors when their usual legal advisors were unavailable.

"Luke is well known in the area, having worked in residential and commercial property locally for several years, and being an active member of a number of football clubs. He’s very personable and popular with both clients and our professional estate agent and financial advisor colleagues. A trainee of mine at a previous practice, I’m delighted to have Luke back in my team and bringing his considerable talents to support the requirements of our clients."
