Sarah Sams Appointed Head of Residential Property

Dutton Gregory Solicitors has appointed Partner Sarah Sams as Head of the firm's highly successful Residential Property division.

Sarah Sams, who previously was a Partner at Dutton Gregory Solicitors, is an experienced property law expert with over 20 years of experience in residential conveyancing. She has a specialist knowledge in shared ownership, having advised some of the largest affordable housing providers in the UK, as well as acting for leaseholders and buyers.

Sarah will be overseeing the 50-strong residential property department, who have been helping people to buy and sell property for over 75 years.

Sarah Sams, Head of Residential Property at Dutton Gregory Solicitors, said: “I am delighted to have been promoted to Head of Residential Property at Dutton Gregory, a firm which I joined  at the start of 2018, progressing from Solicitor to Associate and Senior Associate before becoming a Partner.

“The department has excellent foundations in place, on which I intend to build our national presence and grow the team. In the past year we have undertaken a merger to work with highly experienced property professionals in Surrey and opened an office in the heart of Liverpool to serve and develop our client base in the north.

"Dutton Gregory has a strong focus on the customer journey and making clients' lives easier through the use of technology such as digital conveyancing and fully embracing advances in AI where appropriate to do so.”

Emma Menzies Chair at Dutton Gregory Solicitors, said: “I am delighted that Sarah has agreed to take on this role at the firm.  We all know she has the knowledge, focus and strength needed in such a demanding department, and recognise her hard work and longstanding commitment to delivering the highest quality service to clients. I am excited to see how she supports and develops the team, and the impact this will have on the wider firm.
