Keebles continues to build on its expansion with two new appointments in the firm’s commercial property team.

Based in Sheffield, newly qualified solicitors Kate Langley and Louise Ward have joined the 25-strong team after successfully training with Keebles, one of the county’s largest law firms.

Kate said: “It’s an expanding department with a growing client base. We give high quality tailored advice and we listen and invest a lot of time in getting to know our clients.”

Sheffield-born Louise said: “After I trained at Keebles, I didn’t want to leave. Knowing the area well helps me in terms of property and the market. It gives me a good background for transactions and clients. It’s a brilliant firm to work for, very friendly and very supportive.”

Richard Smith, head of Keebles’ commercial property department, said: “We wish Kate and Louise continued success as we continue to go from strength to strength as one of the region’s biggest commercial property teams.”

With offices also in offices in Leeds and Doncaster, Keebles is regarded as a key player by the Legal 500 and Chambers guides.

The Legal 500 2018/19 guide describes the commercial property department as combining ‘excellent service levels’ with a ‘personable approach’ making it ‘a key firm for clients in the region’.

The team includes five partners and counts Harworth Group, Coalfields Regeneration Trust, St Pauls Developments, Sheffield Business Park Limited and Crossbow Investments among its clients.
