LAW firm bolsters top-ranked commercial property team with new Associate

A specialist commercial property solicitor who worked across the north of England after graduating from the University of Hull has returned to the city as an Associate with leading law firm Rollits LLP.

Ruth Maltby-Sinkler graduated with First Class Honours from the University of Hull and, after gaining a Distinction at the University of Law in York, completed her training locally.

Qualifying in 2015 Ruth has specialised in commercial property since then, gaining experience with major firms in Leeds and Manchester including an in-house secondment with Network Rail.

Ruth joined Rollits, which has offices in Hull and York, at the end of 2021 from international law firm Addleshaw Goddard. She brings experience in all aspects of commercial property law, including leasehold and freehold, landlord and tenant matters, secured lending, acquisitions, disposals and corporate support work.

She said “She said: “I’m very pleased to join such a well-known and highly respected firm such as Rollits and I am looking forward to helping the team build on the strong reputation it already has for property work.”

Chris Crystal, who leads the commercial property team at Rollits, said “Ruth is a welcome addition to our team which earned a Tier 1 ranking for commercial property in Yorkshire and Humber in the latest edition of the UK Legal 500 publication.

He added: “The quality of support that we offer clients is reflected by the fact that we have maintained our position as one of the top ranked firms in our region for commercial property expertise, helping them deal with the both the unprecedented challenges and the new opportunities in a changing market.

“Ruth has the sector experience and local knowledge which will enhance the services we offer from both our offices.”
