Two new recruits have joined the property litigation team at Connect Yorkshire Legal Partner and Leeds-based law firm Clarion.
Natalie Ingram and Paige Duller have been appointed as associates.
After qualifying in 2016, Ingram worked for two international law firms before taking on an in-house role.
She has advised on a range of contentious property matters, including commercial and residential landlord and tenant disputes for public and private sector clients, covering commercial lease renewals, dilapidations, breach of covenant and break clause matters. She also has experience in advising developer clients on vacant possession strategies and on land compensation matters.
With seven years’ experience in commercial property, Duller has moved to Clarion to specialise in property litigation. She trained with a firm in London, which specialised in serving clients in the healthcare sector, after having worked in the commercial property practice of another regional firm.
She has experience in a variety of property matters, including landlord and tenant matters, residential disputes, development and property finance, and has acted for a variety of clients, from individuals to investment landlords and large corporate groups.
Sophie Morley, partner and head of the property litigation team, said: “With her fantastic pedigree in commercial property, both in private practice and in house, Natalie is a valuable asset to the team. Likewise, Paige brings experience of residential and commercial transactions and litigation, adding to our capacity and skills.
“We are now one of the biggest specialist property litigation teams in the region and our combined experience allows us to work with some fantastic clients.”
