New appointment strengthens our international reach

We’re delighted to announce that Deepak Prasad, a solicitor with strong international connections, has joined our commercial property team.

Dee brings with him 15 years of experience relating to commercial property law, having previously operated his own West Yorkshire firm, Prasad Solicitors. Whilst running the firm, Dee developed strong international connections in the Far East, India and Middle East. He specialises in matters relating to landlords and tenants, along with an additional focus on property acquisitions and disposals.

On his appointment Deepak, who lives in Bradford, told us: “I am delighted to be joining such a strong property team at Shulmans. The move made sense at this stage in my career as the firm’s international reach means many of the connections I have developed can be serviced more effectively by the larger team.”

Dee will work under Simon Jackson, Head of Commercial Property, who added: “We’re very pleased to welcome him on board. He’s the second lawyer to join our team in the past three months, and there’s a third due later in the summer; a credit to the excellent work the team is doing. And having run a firm himself Dee is quite clearly a driven individual, with an impressive professional history and valuable international connections. I’m very much looking forward to working with him.”

Outside of work Dee is a keen cricketer, partaking in various social and competitive fixtures across the region.
