Switalskis Solicitors has appointed experienced solicitor, Ryan Dhinsa, to bolster the firm’s commercial property department.
Ryan joins the firm’s growing team from his previous position at Raworths LLP in Harrogate. Bringing four years’ experience to the role, Ryan represents landlords and tenants in sectors including industrial, manufacturing, retail, office and leisure.
Ryan will work closely with the department’s two senior figures – head of Switalskis’ commercial property department, Claire Murphy, and senior solicitor, Andrew Lawson. Ryan will be responsible for providing customers with representation in areas including negotiating commercial leases; acting for landlords in estate management deals; and acquiring and disposing of commercial land. He will also maintain his valued relationships with brokers, accountants, and agents.
Says Ryan, “I was keen to join Switalskis primarily because of the quality of the team and also due to the opportunities within the business as it expands and develops. I have worked with Andrew Lawson in a previous role and admire his approach, so I am very much looking forward to working with him again and with the rest of the experienced Switalskis’ team. I wanted to work at a larger firm that has a portfolio of high calibre clients whilst retaining a personal level of service and Switalskis ticks all the boxes for me.”
Commercial property has been identified as an area with scope for growth across the Switalskis group. Department head Claire Murphy says, “We are delighted to welcome Ryan to the team at this point in our growth journey. He is well-regarded in the Yorkshire commercial property market and will no doubt help us achieve our growth ambitions. Ryan has an eye for detail and brings fresh ideas and enthusiasm to our team, which will prove invaluable as we develop our business further.”

The Group comprises Switalskis Solicitors, Atherton Godfrey and Pryers and now sits just outside the largest 100 law firms in the UK, according to The Lawyer magazine’s UK 200 rankings.
