Legal firm Backhouse Jones Ltd has announced the arrival of Brett Cooper, who will head up the firm's Corporate and Commercial team at its Clitheroe office.
Brett's many years of experience in commercial, corporate, property and construction law means his expertise is wide-ranging. He advises on commercial contracts, mergers and acquisitions, business re-organisations and shareholder arrangements in the commercial and corporate sectors, as well as leases, site acquisition and development on the property and construction side of the business. He also has an in-depth understanding of how the road regulatory regime works, which is key for businesses involved in transport.
Having also been involved in his own family business, Brett has first-hand experience of what it is like to be at the coal face. As a result, Brett has developed a down-to-earth and empathetic approach, whilst also retaining a commercial outlook.
When he’s not working, Brett enjoys spending time with his 4-year-old daughter, walking his border collies and rugby; although these days only watching from the touchline.
