A law firm is expanding its Ludlow team with the addition of a solicitor specialising in commercial property.

Laura Lougher has joined Lanyon Bowdler Solicitors in Ludlow, working alongside Susan Grazier and Steven Corfield who are both experienced agricultural lawyers.

Praveen Chaudhari, head of the commercial and agricultural property team at Lanyon Bowdler, said Laura’s knowledge of the commercial property sector would be of great benefit to the firm.

“The commercial property market in Shropshire has been very strong, even throughout the pandemic, so we are delighted to add Laura’s considerable knowledge and experience to the team,” he said.

Principle Estate Management has appointed a new apprentice to its finance department as the business continues to grow.

Aliyah Lowe has taken the finance team numbers up to eight at Principle, where the total staffing now stands at more than 35.

She will be the fifth apprentice the company has recruited from Protocol Consultancy Services, whose managing director Susan Tipton received an MBE for her services to apprenticeships and charity in the New Year Honours list.

Paul Richardson, finance manager at Principle, said: “We’re really pleased to welcome Aliyah to our team, and look forward to seeing her succeed in her role as our other apprentices have.

“This is part of our continuing successful plan to recruit apprentices to junior level roles in both the finance and customer service teams.

“This creates a real career path as they learn to work in an office, learn the job itself and achieve a qualification too.

“It also allows our more established people to pass down some of more straightforward tasks freeing them up to take on more complex tasks as the business continues to grow.”
