SM Commercial advises on sale of Yorkshire law firm

The corporate team from SM Commercial advised on the sale of North Yorkshire legal practice Derek M. Jordan Solicitors to Coles Solicitors.

The vendor, Derek Jordan, remains as a consultant at Coles, which has offices in York, Northallerton and Thirsk.

SM Commercial with support from fellow partners Arif Khalfe (Commercial Property) and Rachel Blythe (Employment), advised Mr Jordan.

Commenting on the deal, Derek Jordan, said: "The transaction was difficult due to a tight schedule for completion, but the 3 partners who acted for me worked tirelessly to achieve a successful outcome. Without their help, the sale would not have been achieved."

Working with our client to accomplish his aims allowed us to demonstrate our expertise in the commercial arena by providing the right advice, at the right time.

Working with specialists across 3 teams underlines our ability to co-ordinate advice and manage transactions to meet key objectives, while further enhancing our growing reputation to handle deals in the specialist professional services sector.

SM Commercial added: "We offer excellent advice at value-driven prices across a range of legal disciplines. Based in Leeds, we support clients nationally."
