Latimer Hinks Solicitors, a leading North East law firm, has helped one of the areas best known businesses to take a major step forward.
Nick Poole, Partner at Latimer Hinks, has helped Ruth Roddam secure the franchise for Saks flagship salon in Darlington, which has moved to Blackwellgate.
As well as Nicks involvement in helping Ruth to take on her fourth Saks franchise, the firm was also heavily involved in the deal for the lease of the new site. Ruth has managed the Darlington franchise, on behalf of the previous franchisee, for 11 years and also has a franchise in Hexham. Her aim, now that she is running the franchise is to restore the luxury element of customers visits.
She said: "I cant thank Nick and the team at Latimer Hinks enough for the service they have provided to help me take on this franchise and push forward to a very positive future.
"The salon is moving to a bright new location, with the la test fit-out and with top quality customer service. The economy isnt all doom and gloom and people still want to treat themselves, so we will be offering a premium service.
"We want people to be able to come along, enjoy a massage in the chair, their favourite programme on the TV, all whilst having their hair cut by staff trained at our Darlington and London academies.
Nick Poole said: "Ruths enthusiasm and drive to offer a high quality of service at Saks, in the town where the company was founded, will undoubtedly lead to a successful future for the salon and we wish her well in her venture.
"Saks is one of the best known names in hairdressing, so it feels very rewarding to have played a part in this new era for its flagship salon.
