Law firm TLT delighted to be sponsor at Belfast Telegraph Property Awards
The real estate team at UK law firm TLT has announced the recent appointment of Kevin Murphy as partner in its Belfast office.
Renowned for his expertise in real estate and specialism in energy and renewables, Kevin joins Judith Allen who heads up the real estate team in Belfast.
The company has also joined forces with the Belfast Telegraph to support its clients in the property sector by sponsoring the Residential Lettings Agency of the Year Award in our 2017 property awards.
Sarah Ewing, legal director at TLT, says: "We are delighted to be sharing in the annual recognition of the outstanding individuals and organisations that contribute to this market's success.
"We wish all those nominated the best of luck and look forward to continuing to support this vibrant sector in the year ahead.
"The celebrated Belfast Telegraph Property Awards are this year being held against a backdrop of cautious optimism and signs of strong potential for growth in the industry.
"This is the case even despite ongoing uncertainty around the economic impact of the UK leaving the EU on the region and the political instability at Stormont.
"Significant announcements about the construction of new hotels in Belfast reflect a growth in tourism, and growth in the retail market is continuing as the fall in sterling attracts cross-border shoppers to NI.
"The housing market in particular remains buoyant and continues to show an upward trend, with the average house price in the region now sitting at £128,650.
"The lending market is benefiting from this, with banks reporting an increase in the number of residential mortgages provided.
"I myself continue to act for one of the largest and most active private and social housing developers with sites across NI and ambitious plans to construct several hundred new houses in the north west over the next couple of years.
"TLT is extremely proud to be sponsoring an award that recognises the excellent work being done in the housing market."
TLT supports large corporate companies, public institutions and high growth businesses on their strategic and day-to-day legal needs.
Able to advise across the three UK legal jurisdictions of England & Wales, Northern Ireland and Scotland, the company has offices in Bristol, London, Manchester, Glasgow, Edinburgh and Belfast, as well as a specialist ship finance team in Piraeus, Greece.
The firm has significant experience advising organisations in the energy and renewables, financial services, housing, leisure, public sector, retail and consumer goods and TMT sectors.
