We’re very pleased to announce that we have appointed Nicola Nutley, who has been with us for two years, as both Partner and Head of Banking.
Nicola is based at our Newcastle office and has more than 25 years of experience. She will play a key part in the continued growth of our banking and property finance services for clients throughout the UK.
“We recognised there was a gap in the North East for a firm with a dedicated banking team which could provide the full range of legal services to funder clients,” said Nicola.
“That has helped us win business locally, but at the same time continue to expand our range of regional and national clients.”
The rapid expansion of our banking department means that Nicola is also starting to recruit, looking for lawyers with relevant experience to join us.
“We’ve grown to a team of 12 but we are definitely now looking for people with a property finance background to come and join Burnetts.” she said.
Our Banking team provides legal support for lenders and for borrower clients across all aspects of lending and finance. Nicola’s own particular areas of expertise - including dealing with funding transactions in the property and healthcare sectors – are a valuable asset because they are a particular specialism here at Burnetts.
Nicola is now looking forward to continuing to play an active role in our future, including helping to drive our expansion in Newcastle.
“I’m delighted to be heading up the banking team at a time when we are continuing to build such a strong client base, not just in the Banking team but across the firm and in the North East,” said Nicola.
“Our expansion means we are also starting to look at new premises for the Newcastle office, in the city centre, to meet with our growing needs.”
