Peter Millican Law has welcomed a new experienced Commercial Property Lawyer to our expanding team.

Ricky Handa has joined the firm to respond to the rapid growth in commercial property work.  Ricky, who joins Peter Millican Law from Square One Law brings in depth knowledge of the North East commercial property market and has a wide range of experience including acquisitions and disposals of commercial property, landlord and tenant, lease advisory and property refinancing.

Ricky, from North Shields, commented:

“I act for a range of clients, from experienced and sophisticated property investors looking to grow their existing portfolio, to start-up businesses getting off the ground.  What’s important is that all my clients receive a stand-out level of service.

“I enjoy working with North East businesses and making a contribution to shaping the landscape of the region.  The morning walk into the office is also made far more interesting by passing a number of the projects I’ve worked on.

Peter Millican, owner of Peter Millican Law, added: “Ricky’s experience, which extends beyond the North East to the London market, is proving invaluable to us.  Such is the success of this area of our work, we expect to be adding several new members to the team around Ricky in the coming months.”


Away from his commercial property work, Ricky is a referee for the Northumberland Rugby Referee Society and officiates matches across Northumberland, Durham and further afield.  He was also invited to and subsequently took charge of refereeing the inaugural North East Property Rugby vs Yorkshire Property Rugby match earlier this year.
