Dove Haigh Phillips strengthen Leeds team

Leeds-based Chartered Surveyors and Property Consultants Dove Haigh Phillips have strengthened their team with the appointment of consultant Peter Roe and the promotion of Mark Nicholson.

Peter Roe, who was previously with Knight Frank in Leeds, will look after building surveying at Dove Haigh Phillips, while Mark Nicholson, a specialist in industrial and commercial agency, becomes an associate.

Mike Dove, partner of Dove Haigh Phillips of York Place, Leeds, commented: "These appointments underline the strength of our firm in a challenging property market. Both Peter and Mark are highly-motivated and talented individuals who add to value and expertise within our focused, seven-strong team".

Dove Haigh Phillips, which was founded three years ago by Mike Dove, Mike Haigh and Jonathan Phillips, all previously partners at Knight Frank in Leeds, has established itself as a highly-successful niche player in the Yorkshire property market and supports a string of quality clients.

Mike Dove said: "Our clients include Thornhill Estates, one of Yorkshire oldest and largest landowners; major occupiers including Findel PLC, Yule Catto PLC, FMG Support, and the HI Group.

"Our international based clients include Dresser Inc and Hallmark Cards of the United States, Teva Pharmaceutical Group, Swiss-based Syngenta and Wavin from Holland. Meanwhile our development clients include ProLogis, Strategic Sites, Keyland, Barwood, GMI, Shepherd Developments and Elland Developments," said Mr Dove.

Major projects include over 1.5 million sq ft of transactions for ProLogis and over 120,000 sq ft of acquisitions for Findel education, FMG Support and Gamestec. The firm has advised clients from Liverpool to Hull and from Teesside to Devon. Current strategic land commissions range from two acres to 2,000 acres.

Mike Haigh, partner, said: "When we started three years, our aim was to provide quality, focussed advice. This would fill a gap at the top end of the commercial property market in Yorkshire and the north of England.

"Crucially, we believe we have done this, providing the bespoke service that our clients need. We provide the access to key decision makers, we spot commercial opportunities that pass others by and we originate creative solutions for commercial property deals".

He added: "When we started we said delivery was the key. We believe strongly we have delivered, even in these difficult recessionary times."

The experience of the firm's three partners covers a number of commercial property sectors. Mike Dove is a specialist in commercial real estate and strategic development, Mike Haigh is one of the leading industrial and commercial property agents in the north of England and Jonathan Phillips is an acknowledged expert on property valuations and investment funding.
