John Roper has joined the Commercial Property team at Andrew & Co Solicitors which has offices in Lincoln and Newark
Having qualified as a solicitor in 2004, John has experience in a wide range of commercial property work including landlord and tenant law, sales and acquisitions, options, pre-emption agreements and conditional contracts. He has also acted for lenders, pension schemes and trusts.
Previously, John (47) worked for a prominent commercial practice in Spalding undertaking a lot work in the agricultural sector.
“I was looking to progress my career and move back to Lincoln,” explained John. “When the opportunity became available at Andrew & Co, it was a case of right place, right time as they have an excellent reputation in the area.
“In my previous job I was doing a lot of work in the agricultural sector, which I enjoy and will continue to undertake, but was attracted by this role as it also includes commercial property work which is a bit more fast-paced and challenging.
“Andrew & Co has a high-calibre client base and were looking for someone senior. Part of the role is business development which I also enjoy being involved in. Lincoln is a vibrant city which is going through an exciting period of growth and it will be good to be a part of that.”
Partner at Andrew & Co Solicitors Catriona Wheeler said she’s delighted to welcome John to the team.
“We have a mixture of residential and commercial developers as well as well-established businesses who have been with the practice for some time, so John’s experience will prove invaluable,” she explained.
“We’re well-known in the sector and are keen to build on our reputation as one of the leading commercial property firms in the area.”
