Double hire for Devonshires in Leeds

We’re delighted to have hired two experienced lawyers to further strengthen our growing Leeds office!

Amy Chadwick joins from Ramsdens Solicitors and Mary Brennan joins from Mackrell Solicitors.

Amy Chadwick is a commercial property Solicitor and joins our Securitisation team, headed by Chris Drabble. Her experience includes commercial sales and leases, refinances and residential plot sales.

Solicitor Mary Brennan joins our Housing Management & Property Litigation team, headed by Donna McCarthy. Mary’s experience spans contentious residential and commercial property issues in acting for a wide range of housing providers, local authorities, and private landlords. Prior to this Mary had spent two years as a real estate litigation Solicitor at DAC Beachcroft.

The office has also welcomed Stuart Counsel, who joined Devonshires in 2022 as a Paralegal, and takes up a role as a Solicitor this month.

These latest arrivals follow that of Sara Mondon who joined from Kirklees Council last year and takes the Leeds office headcount up to 29. We opened our Leeds office six years ago, following the arrival of Partners Chris Drabble and Gary Grigor from Addleshaw Goddard, and are actively recruiting new Solicitors with plans for further expansion.

Chris Drabble says: “I am excited to welcome both Amy and Mary to Devonshires. They bring fantastic experience to their respective teams, allowing us to offer clients even more depth and breadth of knowledge.

“The growth of our Leeds office over the last six years has allowed us to ensure our clients based in the north of the country have easy access to our pool of talented lawyers, and we will continue to look for suitable opportunities to expand here in the city.”

We’re also active supporters of Leeds’ St George’s Crypt, and participate in several events to raise funds and promote the work of the homeless charity.
