Rockliffe Hall is synonymous with five-star luxury and has gone from strength to strength since it opened to the public in 2009.
Since its inception in 2008, Endeavour Partnership has had a proud involvement with the 5* resort working with the directors pre-opening and beyond.
Behind the glamour of the award-winning hotel, restaurants, golf course and spa, Endeavour Partnership’s team has been involved in ensuring that the resort meets the strictest guidelines and is in the best possible position to allow it to continually grow, provide opportunities for the local workforce and put the North East on the map.
As the North East’s go-to solicitors for a wide range of issues in sectors including leisure, agriculture, education, construction, healthcare, retail, IT, start-ups and more, the Stockton-based law firm has been responsible for assisting with various aspects relating to Rockliffe Hall and has a proud working relationship with the property.
Endeavour Partnership’s experts worked on establishing the original company set up to run the whole of the Rockliffe Hall resort, taking in some 375 acres in total and including the PGA golf course and Clubhouse, the multi-award-winning spa, the bedrooms and suites, the two restaurants and the residential elements located on site.
The commercial property team at Endeavour Partnership worked closely with owner, Steve Gibson, and chairman, Warwick Brindle, instructing on the acquisition of the 375-acre site and then also on further land surrounding the resort, including Middlesbrough FC’s training ground at Rockliffe Park.
Following this, Endeavour Partnership was also involved in the planning agreements and other statutory arrangements with Darlington Borough Council and various other bodies.
Simon Wake (pictured above), partner at Endeavour Partnership, said: “With a property as high-profile and successful as Rockliffe Hall, there are many and varied issues that must be continually reviewed.
“The management team there work to the very highest standards in their industry to ensure every aspect is adhered to so our involvement has covered a host of areas.
“To have been involved with the team at Rockliffe Hall from its inception has been an exceptionally interesting process. It has been incredible to see how the business has grown and developed thanks to its dedicated and professional team.”
Chairman of Rockliffe Hall, Warwick Brindle, added: “From the very start, Rockliffe Hall has always worked with other North East-based businesses and Endeavour Partnership provided an exemplary, no-nonsense service that made our development efficient.
“The team’s varying areas of expertise also proved invaluable as they really understood the scale of our project and various needs.”
Located at Teesdale near Stockton, the commercial legal experts have an unparalleled reputation spanning over 15 years.
Endeavour Partnership was launched in 1999 by four partners who saw the need for a law firm to provide purely commercial legal services.
The company has continued to grow from six fee-earners at inception to 21 in total. The business now employs 50 people with plans to steadily increase this.
