A recent addition to the Tollers Legal family, Simon Massey joins the firm as a Partner and Head of the Commercial Real Estate team. Simon has returned to his roots in Northamptonshire to take up this new role having cultivated 17 years’ diverse commercial real estate experience. He has spent his first few months back in Northamptonshire catching up with friends and acquaintances. Simon’s connection to Northamptonshire stretches back to his great-grandfather who operated a successful boot and shoe manufacturing business in Kettering. Simon says: “It is great to be back in Northamptonshire and I am relishing the opportunity to work with the team at Tollers. I believe in leading by example and showing clients how we can add value to their businesses and organisations.”
As Head of Commercial Real Estate, Simon and his team will be working closely with property investors, developers, banks and occupiers to provide specialist legal advice across a wide range of commercial property transactions. Simon is eager to put his extensive experience to good use at Tollers.
Simon’s vision is to “build on the enormous success delivered by Andrew Rudkin and the team to date by creating a team of lawyers that punches well above its weight and is respected as the market leader in the Northamptonshire and Milton Keynes commercial property markets. “
Simon goes on to say “that understanding a client’s needs and objectives is fundamental to delivering technically sound, robust commercial advice to achieve the very best possible outcomes.”
Simon, ranked in Chambers and Partners UK 2016, is recognised for “offering sound commercial, pragmatic advice” who is “always proactive in service delivery and competitive on price” and lists one his most notable achievements as acting for a regional developer investor in a £24.3 million acquisition of a shopping arcade in Newark.
Outside of work Simon coaches U6 rugby minis and is a supporter of Cancer UK and the charity ‘The Rob Stephenson Trust’ which was set up to support underprivileged children in education and sport. Married to wife Emma they have two boys aged 5 and 3. Sounds like he has his hands full!
