Newtons Solicitors, which has its head office in Knaresborough, is pleased to welcome solicitors Roy Cusworth and Jennifer Kirkhope to its successful commercial property team. The new team members will join Sophie Barton in acting for landlord and tenant commercial property work.

  • Roy Cusworth brings many years of experience to the team, including his expertise with farming and large retail clients. Roy also has an excellent client following (particularly in West Yorkshire) after his 45 years in practice.
  • Jennifer Kirkhope is a senior solicitor who joins from Berwins Solicitors, in Harrogate. Jennifer will be focussing on developer clients as well as agricultural work.

The team has been successful in winning instructions from the newly launched discount retailing chain “One Below” which has set up a new distribution centre in West Yorkshire and is opening new stores on the High Street nationwide. One Below Retail has been formed by the former Poundworld Founder Chris Edwards who sold the business in 2015.

Chris Newton, managing director at Newtons Solicitors, says: “The commercial property team is going from strength to strength. Roy in particular continues to receive the support of his former clients from West Yorkshire, such that a new office in Wakefield is the obvious next step for us and one which we are currently planning to open in June with another new team, in addition to our existing 12 offices across Yorkshire, Teesside and the Northeast”.
