Taylors Solicitors has recruited vastly-experienced lawyer John Lomax as a partner and head of commercial property, a new role at the north west practice.

John has more than 30 years’ experience of advising on commercial property and land transactions, acting for borrowers and lenders on multi-million pound deals including acquisitions and disposals, investments, secured lending and refinancing arrangements and other commercial developments.

His wide-ranging expertise also includes acting for landlords and tenants on the granting and assignment of commercial leases.

He is the third partner to join Taylors in the past 18 months as the firm – which celebrated its 30th anniversary in 2021 – continues to expand its breadth of expertise for its commercial clients.

John said:

“I was attracted to Taylors by its ethos of providing high-level support to clients in a very commercially aware and open manner, with a constant focus on meeting their objectives.

“The length and depth of Taylors’ client relationships are testament to this approach. I am thoroughly enjoying my new role and am looking forward to exploring and securing new business opportunities for the firm.”

Elaine Hurn, managing partner of Taylors, said:

“We are delighted to have someone of John’s pedigree to head up our commercial property offering.

“His track record is top class and includes substantial periods as a partner with international law firm Hill Dickinson, niche Liverpool property practice Bullivant Jones, and Lancashire firm Napthens.

“John extends our ability to continue to provide legal advice at the highest level for our exclusively corporate client base, which is how we have built our reputation to date. He has very quickly fitted in to our tight-knit commercial team and is making a big impact.”

Taylors is a nine-partner firm which is exclusively focused on commercial law. It has offices in Manchester and Blackburn.
