Tom Jackson has joined the Schofield Sweeney commercial property team in Leeds as a partner.

As a mainstay within the Leeds property community for over a decade, Tom brings with him a market leading reputation for advising on high profile and complex letting and development transactions regionally and nationally.
In addition to advising developers, investors, and occupiers on a wide range of transactional property matters, he specialises in the logistics and healthcare sector.

“I am delighted to have joined Schofield Sweeney. The commercial property team’s reputation, and the firm’s position in the market is strong. I am looking forward to contributing to that in my new role as a partner. My personal focus throughout my career has been to deliver value for my clients by providing high quality and commercially focussed legal advice to property investors, developers and occupiers in Yorkshire and further afield - there is a massive synergy between that, and the firm’s core values which I am really excited about,” said Tom.

Tom joins from Leeds based law firm, Walker Morris LLP where he trained and practiced in the Real Estate department for ten years.

Rob Hayes, partner in the commercial property team says “I am really pleased to welcome Tom to the team. In particular, I’m looking forward to working with him to support our growing healthcare client base, supporting developers and occupiers of primary healthcare properties, GPs, dentists and care homes.”

The firm has also been strengthened with the appointment of Jack Venable, solicitor, in the corporate team and Chloe Scott, in the marketing team.
Developing and investing in the firm's expertise plays a huge part in its ongoing success.
