Liz Appleyard

Senior Commercial Solicitor

Get in touch

Liz is a senior commercial solicitor with over 30 years’ experience working in private practice assisting clients trading both nationally and internationally, on a B2B and B2C basis, with an extensive range of commercial issues and agreements.

My focus is on commercial contracts of all dimensions. I really enjoy getting under the skin of a business so that I can add value by tailoring agreements and advice to the needs of the business.

“I see my role as providing support to help the business grow and to protect its interests. As I have advised businesses of all shapes and sizes I can provide practical commercial advice for most scenarios.

“I particularly enjoy the diverse nature of commercial contract work and the fact that agreements catering for unusual arrangements are often required.

Liz always adopts a straightforward approach to drafting and is always keen to avoid unnecessary legalese and archaic language so that the client actually understands the documents she prepares.

Given the length and depth of my career (I qualified in 1989), I can turn my hand to virtually any commercial contract ranging from the standard to the esoteric. I relish a challenge!

Outside of work Liz enjoys gardening and visiting gardens, the theatre, cooking and watching a variety of sports with her sons.

I've had great experience in dealing with HJ, unlike any I've experienced in the past. There was care and attention in the drafting stage working out my exact requirements, not just legally but understanding how the business worked to advise further.
