It’s with great pleasure that we can share with you that we have now appointed a new partner to our Commercial Dispute team.
His promotion to partner comes thanks to Alex’s extensive experience in handling real property and cross-border disputes, acting for a broad range of clients including those in the construction sector, landlord and tenants, international businesses and as solicitor agent for lawyers across Europe.
Alex was admitted to the prestigious office of notary public in 2012 which allows him to authenticate and certify documents, facts and events to facilitate overseas transactions and litigation. A notary public is an internationally recognised public office and Alex is appointed by the office of the Archbishop of Canterbury to carry out this function in England and Wales.
Endeavour Partnership’s commercial dispute team is one of the most experienced in the North East and works across the region. Its six-strong fee-earner team acts in all areas of litigation such as construction, commercial arbitrations, insolvency, intellectual property disputes and professional negligence claims to name just a few.
Speaking about becoming partner, Alex Smith said: “I am obviously delighted to have been offered the role of partner as I continue to progress with Endeavour Partnership’s great team. The firm’s commitment to creating new opportunities for staff is exceptional and I am looking forward to what my future holds going forward.”
Paul Bury, managing partner at Endeavour Partnership, said: “Alex has shown a real commitment to our firm, clients and the region as he continues to excel. He has a growing reputation for his thorough and practical advice with varied experience and knowledge of his field. Endeavour Partnership is always committed to staff development and it is a pleasure to see team members progress their careers with us as we continue to grow as a firm.”
