Harrison Drury expands residential property team with latest appointment

Harrison Drury has appointed experienced associate solicitor Lauren Sumner to join its residential property team.

Lauren graduated from the University of Central Lancashire with a first-class Undergraduate Master of Law Degree and joins after spending five years working at Complete Convey Property Lawyers. Before this, she spent four years at AMS Solicitors where she qualified as a solicitor in 2017.

She will be responsible for dealing with a range of property transactions including sales and purchases, both freehold and leasehold, remortgages and transfers of equity.

Lauren will be based at our Preston office but will provide support to clients across the region.

Duncan Rawlinson, partner and head of home and family law at Harrison Drury, comments: “Lauren’s experience in the residential property sector will be vital as we expand our team across the region.

“She understands that when buying or selling a property, our clients want to be kept informed of the progress and get things done as quickly and efficiently as possible, which is our ethos.”

Lauren adds: “I was attracted to Harrison Drury as it’s a firm with a great reputation with an exceptional client base.

“It also seems to appreciate family values, as a mother of two, I’m very much focused on raising my family alongside having a successful career – I feel Harrison Drury is a firm that will help me achieve that.”
