Lutterworth and Hinckley-based Headleys Solicitors has strengthened its team with the appointment of a new litigation solicitor.
Sarah Pears joins the firm’s Lutterworth head office and will work alongside head of litigation, Paul Kalaher to support caseloads. Qualified since 2004, Sarah originally trained with a practice in her home town of Bromley before relocating to Leicestershire and continuing her litigation career at Bray & Bray. Sarah’s specific areas of expertise encompass insolvency, neighbour & property disputes, contract disputes, partnership & shareholder disputes, consumer rights and landlord & tenant matters.
“I was attracted to Headleys as they have a really strong reputation locally and are well-known for being friendly, approachable and pragmatic,” said Sarah. “The challenge with litigation is helping someone from the start when they know something isn’t right and seeing that through to a successful conclusion and with a firm like Headleys, clients work with the same personnel so there is complete continuity of service over a case, which is really reassuring.”
Established since 1928, Headleys provide quality, trustworthy and considered guidance across a full range of legal disciplines. Principal, Rod Stephenson commented: “Our civil and commercial litigation work has been rapidly increasing following some really successful resolutions. The time was right to bring in additional expertise for this area of the practice and Sarah was the ideal candidate; we’re confident she will be an asset to the team.”
Away from work, Sarah lives in Market Harborough, enjoys fitness and spending time with her husband and three young children.
