Client Story

Pub purchase made easy thanks to lawyers’ expertise

24th March 2022

When Joanne Vogler and James Redding wanted to buy their first pub – the Queen Matilda in Stroud, Gloucestershire – they turned to HCR to guide them through the process.

Ben Thomas led on the property side of the purchase with partner Derek Callanan and solicitors Emma Clarkson and Adam Thompson acting on the corporate side.

Members of the firm’s employment, planning and licencing teams were also involved in the deal. This brought together a range of disciplines and expertise across the firm to enable a positive outcome for the clients as they became publicans for the first time.

Ben said: “It was a great feeling to be able to help Joanne and James start this new chapter in their lives, particularly as it involved working with colleagues from across the firm, making it a real team effort. I wish Joanne and James all the best for the future of the Crown of Queen Matilda.”

Joanne said: “We are pleased the purchase went so smoothly, and we’re very excited to be part of the Stroud community. I’d like to thank Ben and the team at HCR for making it as straightforward as possible.”
