Partner

Originally from Chester, Jacinta studied Law at Sheffield University and achieved an LLB ( Hons) degree before returning to Chester to complete the academic stage of training at the College of Law.   She moved to Shropshire to complete her legal training in 1984, qualifying as a Solicitor in 1985, and fell in love with the County. Jacinta and her husband have remained in Shropshire ever since.

Areas of Expertise

Jacinta is a very experienced property lawyer and leads the firm’s residential property team. She deals with all types of acquisitions and sales relating to domestic use of land, including site developments, single and multiple plot sales: she has particular expertise and interest in rural properties and unregistered titles.

Jacinta has developed expertise in leasehold property including:

  • acquiring freehold  reversion interests
  • advising on set up of new leasehold developments to maximise saleability and value
  • advising landlords and tenants on management matters, eg. lease extensions, individual and collective enfranchisement

Going the extra mile for her clients

Jacinta always works hard to achieve a client’s objectives in a transaction, but she recalls one matter that stands out in particular.

One of her clients had agreed a significant acquisition deal at the beginning of December and it was a term of the agreement that the matter completed in a very tight time scale. When the paperwork eventually arrived it was huge and in view of the imminent Christmas holiday it seemed that to complete the task in the time frame would be impossible. However, determined not to disappoint her client, the freehold reversion team gave up several days of their Christmas break to get the deal done by the end of year deadline… and they did it!

In her own time

Out of the office, Jacinta spends as much time in the open air as possible and is a keen sportswoman, enjoying horse-riding, cycling, walking, snow skiing and many water sports.

She is a longstanding member of the Shropshire Wildlife Trust, and is also a member of the Shrewsbury & District Riding Club, Maelor Riding Club and local and national TREC riding associations.

Jacinta is a keen supporter of community projects in her home town of Wem, and is a founder and continuing Trustee of the Wem Millennium Green, a member of the Wem Civic Society and the Wem Amateur Dramatic Society.
