What our clients say

  • "The team at Real Estate are really pleased with the sale of this site and we're very grateful to Andrew and the team at Ward Hadaway not only for their legal skills and expertise, but also in the commercial understanding and value added in driving the project over the line. When we bought it we saw a lot of potential and our aim was to build something that would really benefit the local community. It is well located to provide a much needed amenity for locals as well as those passing between Stalybridge and Hyde. Andrew and the team promoted and protected our interests from start to finish as a dedicated extension of our own team. We look forward to working with them on other projects."
