New face of the commercial property team at Tozers
Amanda Bonnick, a solicitor in the new-look commercial property team at Tozers Solicitors LLP, arrived at the Exeter law firm from Cornwall last month. She is working alongside Amy Cater – an associate solicitor who specialises in planning and joined Tozers a year ago.
Amanda advises businesses and individuals in relation to their general commercial real estate needs and has particular experience in the sale and purchase of commercial property in the hotel and leisure industries and also in relation to lease arrangements for office and retail premises. In addition, Amanda is a specialist in the renewable energy sector; having previously advised local and international development companies when acquiring sites for the construction of onshore wind and solar farms.
Amy, on the other hand, specialises in planning and public sector matters. Prior to joining Tozers, Amy worked as a planning solicitor in a local authority for five years having previously trained at a leading London law firm.
Amy has acted on a broad range of planning matters including section 106 obligations for commercial and residential developments including affordable housing; the formulation of planning applications and planning appeals, lawful development certificates; listed buildings and conservation areas; tree preservation orders; environmental impact assessments; enforcement cases including injunctions; Judicial Review; and advocacy in public inquiries. Other public sector work includes footpath diversions, licensing and environmental health cases. She has also advised Town and Parish Councils on a variety of matters including neighbourhood plans, the Localism Act; contracts; charitable trusts, disclosable interests and property-related matters.
Tracey Bridgwater, partner in the commercial property team at Tozers, comments: “Amanda will be a welcome addition to the team who are currently dealing with a high volume of multi million pound acquisition and disposal transactions in addition to refinancing and estate management work for overseas investors with mixed use portfolios.”
