Growing real estate team welcomes new senior lawyers

15th May 2018

The growing real estate team at Harrison Clark Rickerbys has welcomed two new senior members, bringing the number of partners to 15, and boosting its strength across the region, with 59 fee earners in the team, and a recent accolade for its commercial property lawyers in Worcester, chosen as the best in their field in the county.

New partner Clare Day (nee. Titchener) joined the team at the firm’s Wye Valley office – she specialises in real estate finance and all areas of property investment, with experience of freehold sales and acquisitions. She deals with secured lending and has considerable experience with large scale transactions. She joins the team from Clarke Willmott.

Chrissie Doherty has joined to lead the residential property team in Worcester – she’s familiar with both local and London property markets. Having trained and worked in the Midlands, Chrissie then focused on the London property market, so she is used to matching her pace to the speed needed in that arena. She has acted for a wide range of clients, including professional sportspeople, musicians and actors.

Their arrival strengthens the firm’s real estate division still further – at the start of the year, Harrison Clark Rickerbys created a New Homes team, to broaden the expertise on offer. With planning, construction and dispute resolution experts on hand as well, the team offers a complete property service to private and commercial buyers, sellers and developers.

Matt Hayes, lead partner in the firm’s real estate team, said: “Not only do we now have outstanding expert advice to offer clients, but we also retain our commitment to excellent client care – we know that property decisions can be challenging, and we support our clients throughout. I know that Chrissie and Clare share that commitment and we’re delighted to have them on board.”
