We are delighted to announce that we have recently been appointed to Santander UK’s national commercial panel.
After a rigorous accreditation process, our team was very pleased to receive the news that our application to join the panel had been approved. We join the small group of firms across the North East and nationally, which have been selected to represent Santander’s interests during commercial lending transactions.
Elaine McLaine-Wood, Partner and Head of Corporate & Commercial and Commercial Property at Punch Robson led the application to Santander. She said “Santander have been friends of our firm for many years, so the opportunity to work alongside them by providing high-quality legal support for their lending activities is fantastic. I know that our Commercial department, myself included, are really looking forward to working on the panel – it is an exciting opportunity for us”.
Here at Punch Robson, we offer a wide range of Corporate & Commercial services to our clients, ranging from corporate restructuring, business and share sales through to the whole range of commercial contracts and corporate legal administration. Our team is highly experienced, well connected and respected across the region.
Mark Eastwood of Santander Corporate & Commercial said “We were impressed with Punch Robson’s application to the panel and have been very pleased with the work we’ve seen from them over the past twelve months. We are excited for our future working with them and believe it will strengthen the service we are able to provide to our clients.”
The appointment will involve the whole Corporate & Commercial team at Punch Robson, who have recently moved from the firm’s head office on Albert Road in Middlesbrough to the Ingleby Barwick branch. The department has expanded – taking on new Solicitor, Laura Dale, and they are hoping that this new partnership will be another success story.
