Joanne is the second solicitor in the agricultural and rural property team to be promoted to partnership level. She deals in a broad range of commercial and agricultural property work; her experience includes landlord and tenant matters, acquisitions and disposals of farms and all forms of rural diversification including development schemes,development, telecommunications leases and wayleaves.
Paul Nash, Managing Partner comments: “The promotions of Kate, Natalie, Emma and Joanne recognise their excellent reputations in each of their specialist fields. The firm's decision to promote these able solicitors shows it's commitment to equality and recognition of ability rather than time spent at the firm. In particular, the agricultural team has developed to supply growing demand for its expertise and to ensure long term continuity for clients, as can be seen in these partner promotions and the recent recruitment of Aurea Kevill and Richard Whittaker."
