A leading North East commercial law firm has appointed a new managing director as it looks to implement its strategic growth strategy.
PG Legal, which specialises in commercial property, litigation and corporate solutions, will be led by Jonathan Fletcher, who has been a director at the firm for seven years. He will now head up the firm during the implementation of a growth strategy across the region.
Jonathan joined the firm in 2012, enabling PG Legal to expand the scope beyond commercial property and become the full service provider it now is. He said: “I am delighted to have the opportunity to drive the business forward. The support which I have received from the team, clients and the local business community has been outstanding.
“We have a fantastic business with a very bright future, driven by a team of dedicated and professional people. I look forward to continuing to grow the business and support more businesses of all sizes in their legal needs.”
Jonathan has already put plans in place to expand PG Legal’s presence in his home region of Teesside, creating new jobs and providing full service legal support for local businesses around the Tees Valley.
Jonathan continued: “Our priority is to provide pragmatic, commercially sound and affordable legal advice to the region’s SME’s. Whilst we can, and do, cater for larger commercial clients, a big part of our region’s economy relies on the success of SME businesses. It’s important that we supply the best on-the-ground, sensible advice which ultimately will help to contribute to their success and the economic growth of the region.
“We are proud to have evolved from a commercial property law firm to a friendly and approachable legal practice which offers a rounded approach to problem solving. We often have clients who anticipate they have one legal issue which turns out to be a separate matter. That is why we are here – to advise and guide businesses.”
In the past year, the firm’s growth has allowed significant expansion including the appointments of key members of staff; marketing manager Vikki Todd and tax solicitor Simon Briton.
