Bridge McFarland Welcomes New Solicitor to Grimsby Team

Bridge McFarland Welcomes New Solicitor to Grimsby Team

A lawyer specialising in property development and planning law is joining the regional law firm Bridge McFarland Solicitors.

Joe Pepper has joined the firm’s Grimsby office as an Assistant Solicitor. Having previously had training in the more practical aspects of construction, as an apprentice electrician and while doing extensive work experience with the family joinery business, Joe feels he is able to better understand the technical side of property law than if he had gone straight into legal training.

Joe has also worked for the Citizens Advice Bureau; initially advising people on debt relief solutions, he soon became a housing and homelessness specialist. It was while working at the Citizens Advice Bureau that Joe decided he wanted to study law and become a solicitor.

In his new role Joe will focus on all aspects of development, sale and leasing of both commercial and residential land and property, including options and conditional contracts, land development schemes, property investment, commercial contracts, mortgage security, planning enforcement and lawful development certificates.

Joe has described himself as being “excited by the opportunity to combine the practical down-to-earth background I have with the legal knowledge I continue to develop – I like to think I can provide the sort of advice normal folk like myself can use and feel empowered by.

“The positive feedback I often get is that I take some of the mystery out of the legal process – I can put legal considerations into the context of whatever the transaction happens to be and cater to a wide client base”.

Stephen Oldridge who leads the commercial team in Grimsby has said that he is “delighted that Joe has agreed to join the growing team at Bridge McFarland. Joe is very well thought of in the Grimsby area and has a bright future ahead of him”
