Addleshaw Goddard announces new leadership for Leeds office

International law firm Addleshaw Goddard has unveiled the new head of its Leeds office.

Lucy Sturrock, a well known real estate lawyer, takes over the role from Pervinder Kaur after the end of her three-year term in office. Lucy will drive Addleshaw Goddard's operations and ambitious growth strategy in the city for the next three years.

Lucy has been a prominent figure in legal community for many years, having originally joined Addleshaw Goddard legacy firm Booth & Co in 1993. She is ranked by both the Chambers UK and Legal 500 directories as a leading property lawyer, with the latter singling her out for her 'brilliant mind'.

She has experience in a broad spectrum of commercial property transactions and has a particular interest in hotel and leisure property having co-chaired Addleshaw Goddard's Hotel Sector for many years. She is particularly skilled in managing large teams, helping clients realise value from their existing portfolios, and advising on restructuring and national acquisition and disposal programmes.

Lucy Sturrock said:

"I'm excited to have been asked to follow in Pervinder's inimitable footsteps and take on the responsibility for driving Addleshaw Goddard forward in the city and beyond. We have a proud heritage and reputation in Yorkshire. The firm is growing at pace, with our 19th international office opening this month, but we are always rooted in the community here. Having spent 30 years working for Addleshaw Goddard, there has never been a more exciting time to be in the city. I am looking forward to working with the team here to  continue to deliver for our clients and the communities we operate in."

Andrew Johnston, Addleshaw Goddard's Managing Partner, added:

"I'd also like to thank Pervinder for the contribution she has made over the past three years. Thanks to her dedication, the firm continued to thrive in what were challenging times. She has been a fantastic ambassador for the firm and has really made a mark while reinforcing our status in the local market."

Addleshaw Goddard is considered a 'giant' in the Leeds legal market, with among the most comprehensive, high-quality legal offering of firms in the city. The firm's Leeds roots date back to 1775, when Nicholas Smith founded a firm in the city which went on to become Booth & Co, later merging to become Addleshaw Booth & Co.
