Introducing Luke Rees - Lace Law’s Corporate and Commercial Solicitor

clip_image002Central to Lace Law are our people, who have the real world business experience needed to be able to provide advice to our clients and add value to their business.

It is this experience that allows them to act as “sounding boards” for businesses’ day to day issues, and allows our people to provide them with actual advice rather than just options.

We therefore want you to get to know our team a little better, with this article being the first in a series introducing them. First to be profiled is Luke Rees, our corporate and commercial solicitor, who specialises in dealing with company and commercial matters for business clients. Luke joined the Lace Law team in January 2017, having previously been a partner and Head of Business Law at a renowned law firm in Mansfield, where he spent three years developing their commercial section.

Luke obtained his first degree, a BA Honours degree in Politics and Modern History, from the University of Wales in Aberystwyth in 2001. He then graduated as a teacher, before opting for a career change and studying law. He qualified as a solicitor from the College of Law in York in 2009, having completed his training contract at a well-respected law firm in Newark, where he worked for nearly seven years.

Luke has a considerable amount of commercial acumen, which enables him to provide his clients’ with solutions to their legal issues rather than just an unhelpful list of options. He also has extensive experience of advising businesses in relation to a wide variety of legal issues, including company law matters, incorporations, commercial contracts, shareholders agreements, business sales and acquisitions, corporate employment, lease matters on behalf of landlords and tenants, TUPE advice, corporate finance and sales and purchases of commercial property.

He is particularly passionate about adding value to the businesses that he assists. He aims to remove all of the complicated legal jargon from the relationship and instead provide clear and honest advice to his clients in plain English. He believes firmly in creating relationships with his clients and providing a level of service which mean that they view him both as a trusted in-house lawyer and as an extension of their business.

Luke is a family man, who is married with two young children - Dylan and Martha. Work and being daddy therefore tends to keep him extremely busy, but in the spare time that he has Luke enjoys going to the gym (which he attends at 5am!) and playing sports. Although cricket and rugby are his two favourites, he describes himself as “too old and fragile to play rugby anymore”, but remains an avid follower of the Welsh national team, honouring his proud lineage!
