Law firm strengthens its Cornish team

Law firm Charles French Solicitors has strengthened its Cornwall-based team with two strategic appointments, and an internal promotion.

Helen Sennett joins as an associate whilst Rachael Ash is appointed residential conveyancer Executive. Ben Birkett is promoted to director in the residential and commercial property team.

After a brief hiatus, Helen returns to Charles French’s Truro office as an Associate, to further strengthen the commercial property team. Helen has extensive experience in commercial property law, and brings a wealth of knowledge and expertise, together with a deep understanding of the local market. With a particular focus on development work, Helen offers valuable advice to developers, landowners, and investors at all stages of the development lifecycle from acquisition to disposal, including option agreements, development finance and infrastructure agreements.

Bringing a wealth of knowledge, Rachael joins the company as an experienced conveyancer. Within her new role, Rachael will specialise in all aspects of residential conveyancing including sales and purchases, re-mortgages, transfers of equity, and affordable housing.  Rachael will be based at Charles French Solicitors Newquay office.

Previously an Associate, as Director, Ben will form part of the senior leadership team as well as continuing to advise on a wide range of residential and commercial property matters.

Charles French, director of Charles French Solicitors said: “Helen and Rachael’s appointments and Ben’s promotion are great examples of the firm’s commitment to continued growth within Cornwall. We pride ourselves on being commercially minded lawyers, who use a common-sense approach to provide an efficient service to our clients.

By ensuring our talented team and clients have the very best people guiding them, we can meet the needs of our expanding business. Helen, Rachael and Ben share our vision for continual development and excellence and I’m looking forward to working with them closely in the next chapter for Charles French Solicitors.”
