We are delighted to introduce our new Commercial Property Solicitor, Ellen Roberts

My name is Ellen Roberts and I am a commercial property solicitor based in the Shrewsbury office. I have recently joined the firm in January 2018.

Born and bred in Shropshire, I went to the University of Warwick to study Biomedical Chemistry however after deciding the laboratory wasn’t for me I swapped to the law. I began my legal career working as a legal secretary for a local firm in 2010, and then proceeded to study for both the Graduate Diploma in Law and Legal Practice Course part time as well as progressing from a secretary to a solicitor.

Having qualified as a Solicitor in 2013, I have worked for local firms in Shropshire specialising in both commercial and residential property developing my skills and understanding of the area. I had the opportunity to broaden my knowledge of commercial property by recently working for a top 25 tier law firm in Birmingham.

Always keen to come back to work in Shropshire I am delighted to be working in a great team at Terry Jones. I pride myself on my attention to detail and achieving positive results for my clients in a fast and effective manner. I have found the analytical teachings I received from my science degree have transferred and are useful in the technical aspects of commercial property.

I take a keen interest in what is happening throughout the country but especially the West Midlands region in terms of commercial property and I am keeping my eye on the situation with the Wolverhampton based company Carillion and how it will affect house building in the area.

The collapse of Carillion in January 2018 has rattled the building industry as housebuilding activity fell last month for the first time since June 2016 which will be a huge blow to the Government who have pledged to build one million homes by 2020. It will also be interesting to see over the next few months what will happen with the government contract HS2 and its impact will have on many homeowners in the region.

I specialise in all aspects of commercial property including agriculture, landlord and tenant, buying and selling development and investment properties, setting up residential development sites for plot sales and acting for financial institutions to secure charges over property.
