Welcoming a new partner to our residential property team

09 February 2021

We are pleased to announce the appointment of a new partner to our residential property team.

Simon Hodges re-joins Willans after 5 years at Hughes Paddison, where he was a director in the firm’s conveyancing department.

A well-known face in Cheltenham conveyancing, Simon has over 15 years’ experience in residential property law. He has particular expertise in dealing with the purchase of retirement properties and has acted for clients purchasing from large national retirement home builders for many years.

News of Simon’s appointment comes after a series of senior-level promotions at the firm were announced last month. Adam Hale became a partner after three years as senior associate in the firm’s agriculture & estates team, wills, trusts & probate specialists Miranda Hawkes and Tom O’Riordan became associates, and chartered legal executive Mary Young became an associate in the residential property team.

Bridget Redmond, managing partner, commented: “I am delighted to welcome Simon back to Willans and am really proud of Adam, Mary, Miranda and Tom; I look forward to seeing them thrive as partner and associates, respectively.

“Each has shown clear commitment to providing clients with first-class legal advice in a responsive, approachable way. That is very much the Willans ethos and it is why we have earned the trust of generations of clients.”

Our residential property department has acted in all sorts of property transactions since the firm’s beginnings more than 70 years ago. Most of our clients come by honest, objective recommendation from other satisfied clients and professionals who have worked with us. We are also proud to have been the first law firm in Cheltenham to gain membership of the Law Society’s Conveyancing Quality Scheme – a mark of excellence for the home-buying process.
