Ramsdens marks 2021 with an appointment and a job well done

The Ramsdens Solicitors conveyancing and corporate teams are enjoying strong starts to 2021 after the appointment of a new residential property expert in Halifax and completion of advisory work on a Solicitors Own Software share sale.

Residential property expert Emma Gledhill (pictured, left), who previously held a dual role as a director and property solicitor at a local regional law firm, joins the Ramsdens conveyancing team as a senior associate.

Her more than 15 years of experience in the field, coupled with a special interest in landlord and tenant law, and in-depth knowledge on short and long-term leases and issues relating to leasehold titles, significantly strengthens the Ramsdens conveyancing offering.

Commenting on her appointment at Ramsdens, Gledhill said: “ I am very excited to join Ramsdens. Coming from Huddersfield, I have seen how the firm has expanded over the years, to become one of West Yorkshire’s top law firms. It is an honour to now be invited to work at Ramsdens and to have this opportunity to continue my career as part of their team.”

Lindsey Frith, head of the conveyancing team at Ramsdens, added: “Emma is highly regarded in the local conveyancing community and brings a wealth of experience to our team. As well as being an exceptional conveyancing solicitor, Emma is pragmatic and friendly in her approach. We are thrilled to have her join the Ramsdens conveyancing team and the firm as a whole.”

‘Wealth of knowledge in commercial transactions’

Ramsdens’s strong start to 2021 continued with its corporate team, led by senior associate Emma Spragg with support from partners Stephen Newman and Richard Dean, advising the members of Solicitors Own Software (SOS) on the recent sale of their shares to PracticeEvolve Group for an undisclosed sum.

SOS has delivered practice and case management software and services to law firms across the UK since 1987.

Keith Denman, finance director at SOS, said of the Ramsdens corporate team’s support: “We chose Ramsdens as our legal advisers because of their wealth of knowledge in commercial transactions and our trust was not misplaced.”

“The transaction was incredibly smooth from beginning to end. Emma Spragg was our main contact and she was very commercially minded and hardworking in every aspect of the transaction. In particular her attention to detail was superb. I would recommend Emma for any corporate and commercial deal.”

Spragg commented: “We were delighted to have assisted the shareholders of SOS in this sale. All parties wanted to move quickly to secure a deal which will see the group further realise its international growth ambitions.”
