What services do The Endeavour Partnership provide?
Tony: “When setting up the company Nigel Williams provided sound legal advice alongside an understanding of our objectives. We built a relationship with the team at The Endeavour Partnership from day one, they really listened to us and took the time to get to know the organisation, as such they have gone on to offer advice tailored to our business plan. We work closely with all our stakeholders and are proud of our joined-up methods, The Endeavour Partnership fits in well with this ethos and their expert team align well with the model.
Tony: “Simon Wake and Natalie Kay have worked closely with us on numerous property-related work including negotiating the purchase contract for Tollesby Shops which has resulted in clearing the former, run down units to make way for high quality development of commercial units and residential accommodation. There are times when we are working with multiple parties including landowners, developers and housing associations. This can create a requirement for a complex suite of documents and The Endeavour Partnership are always able to provide us with sound advice to ensure a smooth completion.
