Hill Dickinson: Emma Brecknock

Emma Brecknock

Healthcare law firm Hill Dickinson has added to its Leeds team the hire of health property partner Emma Brecknock.

Brecknock joins from law firm Capsticks and will work with clients nationally as part of the firm’s 25-healthcare team based in Leeds.

Brecknock brings over 15 years’ experience of working for healthcare bodies and organisations on a wide range of commercial property transactions, with particular expertise in property acquisitions and disposals.

She represents landlords and tenants on lease negotiations and site developments with overage and clawback arrangements as well as offering strategic estates advice including options for rationalisation and supporting clients with property portfolio management exercises within the healthcare sector. Brecknock has also completed legal secondments at NHS England and Community Health Partnerships Limited.

Leeds head of office Esther Venning said: “The growth of our office in Leeds is a reflection of the continuing significant growth of our health client base in Yorkshire and the North East. We’re delighted that Brecknock has joined us to lead our Leeds health property team and she will also add further partner-level capacity to our national team as we continue to grow to meet increased client demand.”

The firm’s health lawyers in Leeds office, which opened in 2017, work with a broad selection of NHS, independent sector and life sciences clients to provide advice across the full range of healthcare disciplines, including commercial, employment, real estate, advisory and litigation. In addition to clients based in Yorkshire and the North East, the team also works with healthcare bodies nationally.
