Award winning Newcastle based law firm, Mincoffs Solicitors, has welcomed Jordan Down into its Commercial Property team as a solicitor, following a successful two-year training contract at the firm.
Jordan, who was recently shortlisted in the Trainee of the Year category at the Northern Law Awards, joined Mincoffs in 2017. He has since completed seats in Corporate, Employment and Dispute Resolution before finishing his training contract in Commercial Property and subsequently qualifying into the team. Whilst training, Jordan was recently involved in the £55m refinancing of a commercial property portfolio which completed at the same time as his qualification.
Jordan studied Law at Newcastle University and the Legal Practice Course at Northumbria University, where he attained a Distinction. Upon completion of his studies, Jordan worked for another prominent commercial firm in Newcastle before joining Mincoffs.
Jordan commented: “I have thoroughly enjoyed working at Mincoffs during my training contract and I am excited to continue my career at the firm as a qualified solicitor. I have been offered top quality support and guidance from the partners and other fee earners from the beginning and I am looking forward to the challenges ahead of me.”
Partner and Head of Commercial Property, Ryan Bannon added: “Jordan has been a real asset to the firm since he started his training contract with us, and we are delighted that he is staying on as a qualified solicitor. He has been a consistently hard working and determined trainee in each of his seats which is reflected in his recent nomination for Trainee of the Year. We look forward to seeing Jordan continue to develop professionally and grow at the firm.”
