Andrew Burnham

Solicitor

Job Role at EMG

I am a Solicitor in our specialist Commercial Property team, having joined the firm in June 2022. I deal with all aspects of commercial property law including leases (acting for Landlord or Tenant), sales, purchases and refinancing. I have a particular interest in the retail sector and love bringing new businesses to the high street.

Experience

I graduated from Newcastle University in 2015 and completed my Legal Practice Course and Professional Skills Course at Northumbria University shortly afterwards.

I trained at a small high street practice in Spennymoor before turning my sole focus to commercial property. I’ve since worked in Bishop Auckland and Darlington, as well as a large corporate firm in Stockton-on-Tees which involved a raft of high-value transactions for large regional and national companies.

What do you like about working at EMG?

The ‘people first’ culture is a huge plus and this filters down to our clients. It is clear that this remains the priority even as the firm continues to grow.

Outside of EMG

I am a season ticket holder at Newcastle United (for my sins) and love all things pop-culture.
