Shulmans shortlisted in two categories at the Yorkshire Legal Awards 2016

We are very pleased to announce that we have been shortlisted at this year’s Yorkshire Legal Awards in two categories:

  • Commercial Property
  • Trainee Solicitor: Ryan Adams

Shulmans has one of the strongest property teams in the UK, with specialisms in dilapidations, telecommunications, overseas investments and renewable energy. Operating regionally and nationally, the team counts over 30 property specialists, a comprehensive network of connections and an impressive client list which includes Evans Property Group, Town Centre Securities PLC, Barratt Homes/David Wilson Homes and Lloyds Bank PLC.

Over the past 12 months, the team has handled around £5 billion worth of property transactions, and it is expected that it will grow even further in the near future. The team was 'highly commended' in 2015 at both the Yorkshire Legal Awards and the Yorkshire Property Industry Awards.

Ryan Adams, who is currently working in our commercial department, started his training contract with us in September 2015 and is due to qualify as a solicitor in 2016.

A very entrepreneurial colleague, and seeking to combine his passion for both sports and the law, Ryan recently successfully launched the first National Sports Law Negotiation Competition in partnership with the University of Law, Leeds. Ryan is a member of the Legal & Compliance subcommittee of England Boxing (the national governing body for Olympic and amateur boxing) and a Sports Officer for the Leeds Junior Lawyers Division. Ryan also ran the BPP Debating Competition alongside the BPP Debating Society in June.

Ryan was recently featured in an interview with The Lawyer, where he spoke of his aspirations and his experience as a trainee solicitor.

The Yorkshire Legal Awards recognise outstanding talent across the Yorkshire region and are a key event in the calendars of legal professionals. The awards ceremony will be taking place on Thursday 13 October at the Royal Armouries in Leeds.
