County law firm Sills & Betteridge LLP has announced expansion of its Sleaford commercial law team, with the appointment of Raj Blackburn, a Partner specialising in commercial property.
Raj joins Stephen Swift in the department and acts for a range of clients, from small local businesses to landed agents and national companies.
She deals with the sale and purchase of freehold property including option agreements, overage (clawback) and planning matters. Raj has extensive knowledge of leasehold transactions whether granting or taking a new lease, assignments, variations or surrenders.
Raj is committed to providing practical, commercial advice and a first class client service and will draw upon the breadth of expertise of the firm’s large corporate and commercial department when clients require wider legal requirements.
Senior Partner Andrew Payne says “Raj joining the commercial property team in Sleaford is a real gain for the firm and for clients. Having worked in this field for another local Lincolnshire firm for 13 years, she is very familiar with both the region and the varied work. We are delighted to welcome her to Sills & Betteridge.”
