AFG LAW welcome new Head of Commercial Property

Monday July 11, 2022

In a move set to pioneer AFG LAW’s ambitious commercial property strategy, we are delighted to announce the appointment of Kate Bullen, one of the region’s leading commercial property solicitors as Head of Commercial Property.

After graduating from the University of Hull in 2000 Kate qualified as a solicitor in May 2004. Kate remained with the same firm for a further 18 years, progressing to become a partner in 2011. Kate’s entire career has been spent in property law and her areas of expertise include sales and purchase of commercial property, investment and portfolio transactions including commercial mortgages and remortgages, landlord and tenant law including complex leases and licences and pension scheme transactions. Kate’s skills and considerable knowledge will enhance the incumbent team and more importantly, under her guidance, will allow the department to become a key player in the commercial property arena nationally.

‘Kate brings a tremendous amount of specialist experience to our Commercial Property department,’ commented Managing Director Greg French. ‘Her addition to the AFG LAW team further consolidates our commitment to deliver the best commercial property service to our clients, ultimately becoming the law firm of choice in the North West and further afield.’

‘We’re very excited about Kate joining us,’ adds Anita Boardman, Managing Director. ‘I have known Kate for many years and her joining AFG LAW is a real coup for the firm. She is well known and respected and her appointment will allow us to offer an unrivalled commercial property service to clients.”

“It is rare for such an opportunity to arise,” says Kate “to lead the expansion of an already successful department within a modern and dynamic law firm is very exciting for me. We are actively looking to develop into new areas – and especially grow our commercial property offering. I am excited to be at the forefront of that expansion and work with and grow our existing commercial property team. I am looking forward to getting out there and meeting with local businesses in addition to building upon my existing relationships and connections.”
