Steve joins residential property team at Wilkin Chapman in Grimsby

Wilkin Chapman solicitors has added Steve Watson to its Grimsby-based domestic property team in Grimsby.

Senior solicitor Steve grew up in Grimsby but completed his training in Dorset before moving back to Lincolnshire in 2016 to join Wilkin Chapman’s Lincoln office. From there, he moved to another firm in Louth where he spent five years before returning to his home town in Grimsby by rejoining Wilkin Chapman in January 2023.

Steve said: “It’s a fantastic opportunity for me to rejoin Wilkin Chapman and the fantastic team here in Grimsby. In my previous role I built a successful and expert team. Now I have the chance to do the same again but in a bigger arena as Wilkin Chapman is the leading law firm in Lincolnshire and East Yorkshire.

“It’s closer to home for me as well as I live in the area, so I’m looking forward to building up a local client base, assisting what’s already a great team, pushing us forward and making the Grimsby office successful for many years to come.

“I’m looking forward to building relationships with people in Grimsby and the local area, as well as establishing professional links with both brokers and agents as we all work together to achieve good outcomes for people.”

After starting his career focusing on commercial property, Steve quickly made the switch to domestic property as he missed the more people focused element. He said: “I initially went into commercial property as that’s what my mentor specialised in while I was on my training contract. However I quickly realised that I really missed the client interaction.

“Helping people to buy and sell their houses and that moment when people get the keys to their house is really enjoyable to be part of and I enjoy that process.

“Residential property is a bit more transactional than other aspects of law. There’s a very quick turnover – sometimes you’ve got lots of completions on a Friday for example – some people wouldn’t like that but those are the days I enjoy the most.”
