Lawrence Stephens has announced it has recruited experienced residential property solicitor, Rebecca Thomas, to its expanding real estate department.
Joining the firm as a senior associate, Thomas has over 12 years’ experience in providing expert property advice and legal services to a range of individual and corporate clients, including both domestic and overseas owner-occupiers and investors.
The firm said she also has a “strong background” in building lasting client relationships, providing “outstanding” client service and delivering astute, commercial advice that is tailored to each transaction.
Thomas advises on a full range of residential property transactions, and has “special expertise” in working on conveyancing matters for HNWIs, including high-value freehold and leasehold purchases, transfers of equity, property acquisition and disposal, remortgages, property development and portfolio management.
The appointment follows a series of new hires to the law firm’s growing real estate team, which has seen “strong demand” for its advice and services in 2021.
Thomas said: “I’m delighted to have joined Lawrence Stephens as the newest member of their highly regarded real estate department. I am very excited for the new opportunities this role presents and I hope that I can draw upon my wealth of experience in residential property to deliver successful, commercially-focused results for the firm and its clients.”
Stephen Messias, head of real estate, added: “With her extensive and wide-ranging experience within the residential property sector, and a track record of delivering exceptional client service, Rebecca will undoubtedly be an invaluable asset to our real estate department.
“We’re very pleased to have Rebecca on board and look forward to seeing her thrive during this next stage of her career at Lawrence Stephens.”
