Latimer Hinks Solicitors has played a crucial role in the relocation of two North East branches of Pandora, the international jewellery manufacturer, operated by Bramwells Jewellers, a family-run master jewellers founded in 1867.

The Darlington-based law firm, one of the longest established in County Durham, provides commercial property services to Bramwells Jewellers.

The legal documentation for the new Pandora stores, which sees Pandora move to new flagship premises in Intu Eldon Square Shopping Centre, Newcastle and Prince Bishops Shopping Centre, Durham, was negotiated and completed by Latimer Hinks, a sector-leader in property law.

Bill, Jill and Peter Bramwell, whose family has owned Bramwells Jewellers since 1867, hold the franchises for the new Pandora branches. The decision to move the Pandora stores into new prime retail locations was made to further grow the businesses and create new job opportunities for the future.

Adam Wood, a property lawyer at Latimer Hinks, said: “Latimer Hinks is delighted to support Bramwells in completing this exciting venture. Pandora is a global brand and we are proud to support Bill, Jill and Peter Bramwell by putting in place the legal documentation for the new Pandora stores.”

Bill Bramwell said: “It is an exciting time for Bramwells as we continue to build on 150 years in business. We have been fortunate to have the benefit of considerable knowledge and sound legal advice from Adam Wood at Latimer Hinks as we have expanded into new premises.”
