A listed law firm has boosted its presence in the North East with the appointment of a commercial property specialist.

Keystone Law has appointed Peter Clegg to its commercial property team.

Previously at Square One Law, Peter has over 17 years’ experience advising investors and developers on high-value commercial investments and developments throughout the country.

He advises businesses in a range of sectors including industrial, office, leisure and hospitality on issues such as acquisitions, disposals and real estate asset management.

Peter joins a growing number of Keystone lawyers who are based in the North East.

Corporate partner Anna McGill and commercial property partner Sheena Ray, previously of Womble Bond Dickinson and Clifford Chance respectively, both joined the firm in 2020.

James Knight, CEO and founder of Keystone Law, said: “I am delighted to welcome Peter to the firm.

“Peter’s outstanding knowledge and breadth of experience will really boost our offering in the North East and strengthen our commercial property team’s existing expertise.”

Peter Clegg added: “Keystone’s innovative model and strong reputation in the legal market was highly attractive.

“Being able to focus on servicing my clients enables me to invest in those relationships and continue to provide high-quality, commercially sound legal advice.

“It is fantastic to be supported by and collaborate with other lawyers in the North East and across the UK and I look forward to growing my practice at the firm.”
