The London office of leading law firm Lester Aldridge is going from strength to strength as it expands its numbers with the arrival of new lawyers.

Solicitor Lara Moore recently joined the Residential Property & Conveyancing team in London. Lara specialises in all aspects of residential property transactions, including sales and purchases of freehold and leasehold properties, refinancing and transfers of equity. She acts for a wide range of clients, including high-net-worth individuals, investors and first-time buyers.

Lara said: “I am delighted to have joined the residential team at LA and to be working once again with my former colleagues, John, Doug, Andrew and Neeti. They are all outstanding solicitors and make up a brilliant team.”

In addition, the London office has several new paralegals. Darshan Shah joined the Residential Property team in June, along with Lynnette Andersson, who joined the team this week.

Since joining Lester Aldridge in May 2019, the London property team has grown in response to client needs, offering city firm expertise and an integrated solution for all their legal needs. Clients can access the broader Private Wealth team, with experts in family law, tax, trusts, wills, probate and estate administration.

Other teams based in London have also had new additions. Solicitor Freya Maclean-Boyd recently joined the Restructuring & Insolvency team, and the Tax, Trusts and Wills team has had a new paralegal join this week too, Katie Nicholls.

John Townsend, Partner and Head of Private Wealth at Lester Aldridge, said: “I am delighted to welcome Lara to the firm to further grow our expanding team and to support our clients with the best possible advice, expertise and service.”
