Peter joins Coles Law from Leeds based Needle partnership having previously worked for much of his career in Manchester. Peter specialises in acting for property development clients in the commercial and residential sectors.
Whilst most "lawyer joins law firm stories" are fairly routine, Peter's arrival at Coles came about through a somewhat unusual route when he and his family were seated with Coles Managing Director, Peter Gibson in a restaurant during their respective summer holidays in Italy.
Peter Flemming commented “I did indeed first meet Peter whilst on holiday and it just goes to show what chance meetings can develop into. I am looking forward to working with Peter and the team at Coles and hope that my particular experience will help us to broaden our offering in the commercial property development/investment sector.”
Initially based at Coles Thirsk office, Peter will relocate to the Firms newest and tenth office, in Harrogate when it opens later this year.
Peter Gibson said, "I am delighted to welcome Peter to the firm, his commercial expertise and his dedication to client care are at the heart of all that we stand for. Peter is an excellent addition to our team and I look forward to working closely with him as we develop a greater reputation in acting for commercial and developer clients throughout Yorkshire and further afield. Peter is ideally placed to help spearhead our continued expansion into Harrogate.”
