Commercial real estate specialist, Clare Hyland, has been elected as senior partner at Cripps and takes up her new role on 1 May 2016.

Delighted with her appointment, Clare said: “We have seen strong growth in recent years and I want to ensure we maintain our momentum and remain a progressive firm that is 100 per cent focused on the needs of our clients. I also passionately believe that our people are our greatest asset – it’s their expertise and dedication that mean our clients get where they need to be. And our regional and national reputation is testament to this.”

Succeeding Michael Stevens, who will remain with the firm as a consultant, Clare will work together with other members of the partnership board to make sure the focus continues to be on delivering a client tailored service, whilst championing Cripps as an employer of choice.

Managing partner Gavin Tyler said: “Michael’s commitment and creative leadership has been hugely instrumental in the success of our business to date. This is an exciting time in the history of Cripps and I am delighted that Clare has the opportunity to bring new perspectives to help shape the firm’s future and drive its continued development.”

As the firm’s first female senior partner, Clare’s appointment comes during a period of continuing growth at Cripps and marks a further commitment to its modern and progressive approach to the delivery of legal services.

Clare became a partner at Cripps in 1997 and headed up the firm’s real estate division for ten years. She advises on all aspects of commercial real estate to the public and private sector, acting for investors, owners and occupiers.
