Congratulations to Sarah Brown on 35 years at LA! Sarah’s journey with Lester Aldridge has been remarkable, both in terms of the loyalty to the firm and the progression she has made.

Sarah joined Lester Mooring Aldridge & Russell (later to become Lester Aldridge) on 14 November 1988 as a Secretary. She has undertaken a variety of roles within the Real Estate and Residential Property teams including Secretary, Personal Assistant and then becoming a Paralegal in 2007 reporting to Bob Robertson and embarking on ILEX. Sarah took time out of her studies to raise her family, though her commitment to LA remained even typing up Martin Coward’s “challenging” dictations (on tape!) from home, when her children were young.

Sarah moved across to the Residential Property team in 2009, picking her ILEX studies back up and qualifying as a Legal Executive in 2011. Sarah became a Fellow of the Chartered Institute of Legal Executives in 2014 and in 2018 Sarah was promoted to an Associate.

The residential property team has grown considerably over the last few years and Sarah is a much valued member of this. She is very thorough in her work, highly respected by her peers and highly valued by her many returning clients. She is the team’s first port of call for tricky “unregistered titles”!

Outside of work, Sarah is passionate for anything craft based including baking (her chocolate brownies are legendary), she loves searching for old treasures to up-cycle, DIY in her home and she loves all things Art Deco and based on this year’s holidays – may soon take up sailing!

We cannot thank you enough, or sum up what you given to the firm in a few words, but we are very grateful Sarah for everything you have done for the firm and here’s to the next 35 years!
