Hatchers Solicitors announce promotions
Whilst 2020 has been a challenging year for all Shropshire businesses, Hatchers are pleased to announce that two members of staff have been promoted as a reflection of their experience and overall contribution to the firm and its development.
Sarah Jane Smith has been promoted to Senior Associate. Sarah Jane is highly regarded as one of the region’s most experienced family lawyers, having qualified over 25 years ago, and has a significant wealth of knowledge in her subject matter.
She joined Hatchers Solicitors as Head of their Family department in May 2017 at what was considered to be a challenging time for the department in general.
Sarah Jane has transformed the department and her promotion is recognition of her having made a significant and material difference to the running of the department within the practice.
Sarah Cox has been made Associate within the Residential Property team. Having grown up in Shropshire, Sarah qualified as a Solicitor in 2007, before spending three years in London and Surrey. She moved back to Shropshire and joined Hatchers in 2018. Sarah has extensive experience of providing advice and professional assistance on all non-contentious property matters, dealing with all aspects of conveyancing.
Since joining Hatchers, Sarah has focussed in particular on new-build properties, and has forged excellent relationships with local developers including Bellway, Bovis and SJ Roberts.
Both are based at the Welsh Bridge office in Shrewsbury.
Commenting on staff development, Emma Jones, Practice Manager at Hatchers said “We are delighted to be able to share such positive news in what has been a difficult year. It is wonderful to be able to reward individuals for their contribution to the firm by way of promotion and both are thoroughly deserved. The Partners would like to congratulate both Sarah’s on their new roles.”
