Commercial Property team promotions at Napthens

Marc Appleton, solicitor in the Commercial Property team at North West law firm Napthens, has been promoted to partner.

Mark, of Bolton, joined Napthens in 2013. Formerly of Addleshaw Goddard, he advises clients on matters including investment sales and purchases, new build commercial development work, auctions and commercial leases.

Meanwhile, Marc’s colleague, Stephen Bell, has been promoted to the position of senior associate solicitor, also within the Commercial Property team.

Stephen, who joined Napthens in 2014 and lives near Chorley, works with clients on a range of commercial property legal work including site acquisitions, lending work and landlord and tenant issues.

Both Marc and Stephen are based in the law firm’s Preston office.

James Allison, head of Napthens’ Real Estate Division, said: “Marc and Stephen are well respected members of the team at Napthens and within the commercial property sector in Lancashire and Cumbria.

“It’s fantastic to see these promotions – an acknowledgement of the trust we have in our staff and the great work they do for our clients.

“Along with a number of new, senior level appointments to our Commercial Property and Construction teams over the coming weeks, this is an exciting time for our firm and Napthens’ Real Estate Division.”
