Tim is well known within the regional business community. With a strong background in commercial property, he has acted for many major players in the North East. Tim will work alongside the partners to build on a period of continuous growth at the firm which now employs over 60 staff at its Jesmond based office.
Tim is also known for his charity work and acts as a clerk to a number of local charities, sits on the Development Board of the local Marie Curie Hospice and is a governor of his former school, Dame Allan’s in Newcastle upon Tyne.
Speaking of his appointment, Tim said “I am delighted to join such a well-established and respected firm where I hope to continue to afford my commercial property clients in particular with the client care that they have come to expect.”
Commenting on the appointment, Senior Equity Partner Paul Hughes said “We are very pleased to welcome Tim to the firm. He is an esteemed legal professional and I very much look forward to working closing with him to further develop our service offering here at Mincoffs.”
