Andy and I are delighted to be able to announce that Paul Holland has joined Woods Whur. Andy and I have known Paul for twenty five years and we are delighted that he has agreed to join us.
Paul has specialised in licensing for thirty years, as well as heading his previous firm’s private client department. He has thirty years’ advocacy experience and represents clients in all applications, reviews and appeals under the Licensing Act 2003 and the Gambling Act 2005. He has developed particular expertise in dealing with the licensing requirements of everything from a small corner shop to an international sports stadium. Paul has a significant network of contacts within the regulatory authorities of Hull, Humberside, East and North Yorkshire which compliments our practice in West Yorkshire and nationally. It is on that basis that Andy and I were delighted that after a successful career as a partner at Stamp Jackson & Proctor and latterly at Quality Lockings Solicitors in Hull, he has agreed to join Woods Whur as a consultant. We are looking forward to adding value to his loyal client base.
He prides himself in working with operators from the initial planning stages to the final grant of licences, representing his clients’ interests before licensing sub-committees and in the Magistrates’ Court, should the need arise.
We continue to be keen to grow our national reach and will be looking to bring other lawyers into the business in similar situations to Paul.
