Squire Patton Boggs Promotes Two Leeds Lawyers to Partnership

Squire Patton Boggs is pleased to announce the promotion of two senior lawyers based in the Leeds office to the partnership. Abduss Patel (Real Estate) and Mae Salem (Corporate) comprise this year’s Leeds-based cohort of newly promoted partners, part of a global promotional round in which a total of 23 lawyers have been promoted as partners within the firm.

Abduss’s expertise covers the full range of commercial real estate matters, particularly investments, roadside developments and hospitality and leisure. He acts for corporate occupiers within the retail and hospitality sectors, as well as overseas high net worth individuals and investment trust funds.

Mae has considerable experience in advising on private company acquisitions and disposals, in particular in the private equity space. Most recently, Mae advised Endless on its investment in Amscan International and advised the shareholders of the IDHL Group on their sale to Bridgepoint Development Capital.  Mae is shortlisted for the Emerging Dealmaker Award at the 2020 Insider Yorkshire Dealmakers Awards.

Commenting on the promotions, John Alderton, managing partner of Squire Patton Boggs in Leeds, said: “I would like to congratulate Abduss and Mae on their well-deserved promotions. Abduss and Mae are exceptionally talented lawyers who have established a name for themselves in the Yorkshire market and indeed wider afield. They have played a major role in the success of this office and the growth of our Real Estate and Corporate practices, and their promotions underline the scale of ambition we share for growing our business in Yorkshire and providing the highest-quality service to our clients.”
