STRATFORD-UPON-AVON-based law firm Lodders has announced partner Steven Baker is the new head of its residential property team.

Mr Baker joined Lodders in 2005 and has been a partner at the firm since 2007. Most recently he has focussed on residential and commercial property advice, acting for a wide range of clients on sales, purchases, property funding, landlord and tenant matters, and related business advice.

Before joining Lodders, he worked as a commercial and corporate lawyer, and worked for a number of city firms including in London at DJ Freeman and Co, and in Auckland, New Zealand with Rudd Watts and Stone.

Lodders Residential Property team operates from both its Stratford and Cheltenham offices, and advises private individuals on home or investment property sales, purchases, mortgages, gifts of property, tenancies and leasehold enfranchisement, and acts for companies, partnerships, farmers, charities and trustees.

The team includes partner Alison Wacey, associate and licensed conveyancer Rachel Philips, one of Lodders’ most recent hires, Sophia Khan, who joined last month, graduate legal executive Holly Kennett, chartered legal executive Lisa Podmore, and residential property specialist Karen Bridges.

Mr Baker said: “This is a significant time for me to pick up the reins as head of Lodders' residential property team, as we see a climb in instructions from individuals buying or selling high value or complex properties.

“Professionally, this is an exceptional opportunity for me to lead a well-established, talented and ambitious team that is justifiably well regarded both by clients and our professional peers and referrers."
