Bevan Brittan welcomes new property partner in Leeds

Bevan Brittan has appointed James Teagle as a partner in its property disputes team.

Teagle joins Bevan Brittan’s Toronto Square-based Leeds office from Blacks, where he was a partner and the head of the property disputes team.

He has extensive experience of resolving land and property-based disputes, including those centring on business tenancy renewals; service charge, rent review and dilapidations disagreements; and disputes around restrictive covenants, easements, trespass and claims for possession.

Teagle is regularly involved in complex, high-value claims. As well as owners and tenants, he also frequently works for receivers and secured lenders.

Commenting on his appointment at Bevan Brittan, Teagle (pictured) said: “I am delighted to be joining Bevan Brittan. They have a thriving Leeds office and a strong national presence advising clients on property and estates disputes and litigation as well as a host of related issues. It feels like a great fit for me and I am really looking forward to this new chapter in my career.”

Teagle’s arrival marks a further strengthening of Bevan Brittan’s Leeds office, following on from the appointment of Christian Hunt who joined as a corporate partner in September. The Leeds office has now grown to encompass 12 partners and an overall team of 47.

Michael Boyd, head of the Leeds office at Bevan Brittan, said: “We are very pleased to welcome James to Bevan Brittan. With his impressive experience in property disputes and litigation, he will be a real asset to the team.”

“Welcoming a new partner to the Leeds office is a great way to start the New Year, and I hope is a sign of a strong year to come as we continue to grow and expand.”
