Sarah Thomson joins our Residential Property team
Sarah, who has 16 years’ experience working as a residential property solicitor, has joined our Marlborough office as an Associate from Awdry Bailey & Douglas, based in Chippenham.
Sarah’s appointment marks a period of continuing growth for the residential property team which now employs a team of 15 in Swindon and Marlborough, dealing with the conveyancing requirements of those buying and selling new build houses, flats and period properties as well as the more complex issues often associated with larger properties and agricultural estates.
Partner Robert Collins, who heads the residential property team in Marlborough, said: “We are delighted to have Sarah on board. She has extensive experience of property law as well as an excellent knowledge of the local market. She is friendly and approachable too so it’s little wonder she’s already making her mark.”
He continued: “This is an exciting time for our property team which has doubled in size in recent years, partly due to improving economic conditions and renewed market confidence – and partly due to the new relationships we have forged with estate agents and their clients as well as investors, developers and house builders. The appetite for homes in Wiltshire’s market towns as well as larger properties in its more rural corners continues to grow, and our expansion reflects this.”
Commenting on her appointment, Sarah said: “Residential property work has many dimensions which makes it interesting, but what really motivates me is the human element which stems from the strong and ongoing relationships I develop with my clients. Withy King has an excellent reputation for its property expertise and in-depth knowledge of the Wiltshire market and I look forward to playing a role in its continuing success.”
