Agricultural specialist to join law firm

Commercial and agricultural property specialist Sarah Whittall has joined HCR Law’s Real Estate team as a Partner.

Sarah has over 30 years’ experience in real estate law, during which she has acted for commercial landlords along with facilitating the sale and purchase of land for development.

Sarah, who joins the Hereford office, is recognised in the Legal 500 leading legal directory, and has been noted for her work within Herefordshire in the agricultural property sphere.

Anthony Goodfellow, partner and head of Real Estate, Hereford and Wye Valley, said: “Sarah’s joining the firm is a great plus for us on two fronts – firstly, her knowledge of the commercial property market, alongside her work with both landlords and developers will be invaluable to the team and our diverse range of clients. Secondly, her work in, and knowledge of, the agricultural property market is something many of our agricultural clients in rural areas will benefit from.”

Sarah joins an award-winning team who have cemented their place as leaders in the field with specialisms in areas as varied as commercial, residential, property development, dispute resolution  and agricultural property matters.
