New Partner within the FJG Commercial Property team
30 November 2020 by Marketing Team
We are very pleased to announce a new Partner promotion. Experienced Associate Solicitor, Leon Pascal based in the Commercial Property team in Chelmsford, became a Partner on the 1st December 2020.
This promotion is the latest step in Leon’s career at FJG; having joined the firm in 2013 he subsequently went onto complete his training contract and qualified as a Solicitor in March 2016. He became an Associate Solicitor in January 2019 and now joins the Partnership.
Leon is well-liked and recommended by clients and in Essex business circles. He primarily focuses on investment, development, and secured lending work, and frequently accepts instructions in connection with portfolio acquisitions, disposals, and re-financing. He is also able to advise on residential landlord and tenant matters as a result of his experience of development work.
Leon is continually individually recognised amongst the FJG top-tier Commercial Property team within the prestigious Legal 500 directory. In 2018 and 2019, he was recognised as a ‘Next Generation Lawyer’ and more recently in 2020 and 2021 as a ‘Rising Star’; demonstrating the individual having made major contributions to their practice.
Ellen Petersen, head of the Commercial Property team commented, “Leon exhibits outstanding commitment to client care and is a valued member of the Commercial Property team. He plays a pivotal role in the smooth operation of the Chelmsford office, even more so during the pandemic.”
Paula Cameron, Managing Partner at FJG adds, “Having undertaken his training contract with FJG before qualifying as a Solicitor and now being promoted to Partner shows our internal emphasis on ‘home-grown talent’ by not only attracting but also retaining the most talented lawyers. Career progressions such as Leon’s are a true testament to the development and support we provide to all our staff at FJG.”
