Conveyancer Lashana Henderson, solicitor Ruth Nippers and Vicky Sneddon are now team leaders. Lashana at Huddersfield, Ruth in Leeds, and Vicky in Bradford.
Sarah says: “Our goal is to hit the reset button post pandemic. Drawing a line under the past couple of years and focusing everyone on the future. We have spent a lot of time and effort examining our processes and systems to streamline the way we work, our services, pricing and who we work with, as well as rebranding. Our relaunch of all things conveyancing at Chadwick Lawrence is about having a Real Estate Team focused on business as usual, but better. So that we can really set the standard and lead the way in conveyancing services.”
The Senior Management Team now comprise a Conveyancing Board, meeting monthly with the firm’s main Board members to speed up high-level decision-making.
Sarah, who has been with the firm for 24 years, adds: “Its injected impetus and the mood in the team is buoyant. Conveyancing moves quickly, which means we must be agile, proactive, and prepared for any future challenges.”
The full team celebrated the launch at an away day and afternoon tea at Healds Hall, Liversedge, on 17 May, with special guest Mark Fitzmaurice from Dale Carnegie.
Sarah says: “We launched our plan, charter, and people strategies. And brought everyone together to do it so that colleagues, some who have never met before due to the pandemic, could get to know each other. It was a positive start to our next chapter.”
