South Coast law firm Ellis Jones has appointed the highly experienced Richard Tombs as a new partner. The property expert has more than 30 years’ experience and is now based at Ellis Jones’ Canford Cliffs branch in Poole.
He specialises in all aspects of commercial and residential property law including development and sales, leases, site acquisitions, landlord and tenant transactions and business asset sales and purchases.
Tombs is the 14th partner at the growing law firm which has five offices across the south coast, in Bournemouth, Canford Cliffs, Ringwood, Swanage and Wimborne - as well as in London.
Father-of-three Tombs, who was born in Bournemouth and lived in Poole for many years, said: “Ellis Jones has grown immeasurably in the last 25 years, not just in terms of size but stature and breadth of representation.
“They have become the go-to firm in the local area and beyond with a deserved reputation for quality, reliability and an approachable down-to-earth style."
Nigel Smith, managing partner, said: “Bringing in Richard as partner means we have another 30 years’ experience in property law. Richard is a hugely respected figure within our profession and we’re delighted to welcome him on board.”
