Emily Halley shortlisted for Young Conveyancer of the Year 2018
Despite competing with many other lawyers across the South East, Emily’s varied and complex caseload, her excellent communication skills, technical expertise, attention to detail and problem-solving expertise really stood out to the judges.
“Whether acting for a purchaser or vendor, I particularly enjoy overcoming issues that arise during the course of a transaction such as: advising in connection with contaminated land; regularising planning breaches; advising in connection with subsidence and Japanese Knotweed; identifying and regularising flying freeholds; and advising clients acquiring property adjacent to watercourses. I am delighted that my work has been recognised on a regional level.”
Richard Matthias, LFS said:
“Young Conveyancer of the Year has been our most popular category over recent years. This means those who win can be really proud of their achievements as the competition is fierce.”
Positive client experience
Emily’s clients were happy to provide testimonials on her advice and expertise.
“Throughout the transaction, Emily was responsive and proactive and her ability to keep all parties progressing towards the same goal was invaluable in what was at times a difficult process. She is also able to quickly distil complex legal points and understand from a commercial perspective what matters most to the client. Emily is a pleasure to work with and I could not recommend her highly enough.” First time buyer
“Our first impression of Emily was her empathetic capacity for listening and giving advice in an understandable, comprehensive and professional manner. She was prompt at updating us of developments and always available. All this with a sense of humour and we really appreciated the service she gave us. Overall she is competent, professional, charming.” Homebuyers
The winner of Young Conveyancer of the Year will be announced on 19th September 2018 at a gala dinner at the Vox Conference Centre in Birmingham.
