Partner hire to lead Napthens’ Commercial Property team in Southport

Napthens has appointed Tony Coates as a partner to lead its Commercial Property team in Southport.

Tony, of Hesketh Bank, joins the firm’s office in the town following 18 years with Birchall Blackburn Law.

A highly experienced commercial property specialist, Tony represents a broad range of clients with a focus on owner-managed businesses, private pension schemes, SMEs and property investors – particularly in the hospitality and leisure, and retail sectors.

He will advise Napthens’ clients in the Southport area on matters including contract drafting and negotiation, landlord and tenant issues, property finance and acquisitions.

Tony said: “The commercial property sector is particularly active in Southport and I’m looking forward to joining the team at Napthens to help continue the firm’s recent growth in the town and beyond.”

Napthens operates an office in both Southport, and Liverpool city centre at The Plaza, Old Hall Street, along with offices in Lancashire and Cumbria.

James Allison, head of Napthens’ Real Estate department, added: “The team is going from strength to strength, and demand for our services continues to grow despite uncertainty in the economy.

“Tony’s appointment reflects our commitment to clients in this sector and also the Southport marketplace.”
