Two rising stars have been promoted to the partnership at European law firm Fieldfisher’s Manchester office. Adam Hattersley and John Smith took on the management of the Property Finance team November 2020 and have achieved an impressive 25% growth in the team’s client base over the past year. They became partners on 1 May.
Adam specialises in short term finance acting for a wide variety of lending institutions and bridging finance providers. With a wealth of experience in complex property transactions involving corporate borrowers, trusts, off-shore vehicles and technical issues, he has developed a reputation for his commerciality, efficiency and technical knowledge.
John specialises predominantly in bridging and development finance, working closely with the firm’s bridging finance clients on investment funding, transactions and development of property.
He has over 10 years of experience in Property Finance including his recent involvement in the financing of the 144,040 sq. ft. Cavern Walks centre in Liverpool and completing a bridge over a portfolio of multiple properties in just 18 days for client Aspen Bridging.
Managing Partner of Fieldfisher Manchester, David Bowcock, commented:
“Adam and John fully deserve their promotions. They have driven our Real Estate Finance work and proved themselves brilliant relationship-builders. Clients not only trust them, they thoroughly enjoy working with them, and our people focus is something Fieldfisher prides itself on.”
In 2022 the Real Estate team in Manchester were shortlisted as Property Law Firm of the Year at the North West Insider Property Awards and received the Highly Commended Award as Commercial Property Team of the Year at the Manchester Legal Awards.
