Property, construction and infrastructure consultancy Pick Everard has appointed a new director of landscape architecture.

Her expertise lies specifically in working on urban design, regeneration and developing places for people.

She said: “Pick Everard is a firm that’s renowned for its dynamic approach and diverse project portfolio.

Working across Timms offices in Derby, Ashby, Burton and Swadlincote, she specialises in all aspects of commercial property, including advising landlord and tenants on the grant or renewal of business leases together with disposal and assignments of leases.

She also handles sale and purchases of business assets.

HR & employment specialist Precept has added an experienced solicitor to its ranks.

Alex MacAskill has joined the legal team at the Mansfield Road-business as an associate employment solicitor.

Alex said: “I like the fact that Precept pride themselves on ‘doing law differently’.

“Their advice is straight to the point, and they simplify even the most complex of situations.

“I have known and admired (director and co-owner) Rob Tice for several years, and I am looking forward to being given the opportunity to work directly with corporate clients, and to the fresh challenge that joining Precept brings.”

Rob said: “We have gone through a huge period of growth over the last 12 months at Precept and we are delighted to welcome Alex to the team; we are now one of the largest HR & Employment Law team in the East Midlands.

“She offers a wealth of experience and fits our ‘fresh and accessible’ approach perfectly; to do things differently with a no-nonsense attitude, and to continue to build meaningful relationships with clients and our community.”
