Mogers Drewett has strengthened its residential property team with new appointments and a promotion.
The firm, which has offices in Bath, Wells, Sherborne and Frome, has appointed experienced residential property lawyer Samantha Cook as a partner. Samantha joins the firm from Dorset–based Farnfields Solicitors, where she was a partner.
Samantha specialises in residential property sales and purchases, remortgages, unregistered land and shared property ownership. She will be based in Mogers Drewett’s Sherborne office but will help clients across the region.
Her appointment follows the arrival of fellow residential property partner Robin Phillips, who recently joined Mogers Drewett’s conveyancing team in Bath. Robin has more than 30 years’ experience working as a solicitor in the region.
The firm has also promoted Jessica Gregory who becomes residential business development manager. Jessica is based in the Sherborne office but will cover Bath, Wells and Frome as well. She joined Mogers Drewett in 2022 as residential client coordinator.
Jessica will be responsible for supporting new residential property clients and building on existing partnerships with property professionals across the region.
Sean McDonough, managing partner at Mogers Drewett, said: “I’m delighted to welcome Samantha Cook to our conveyancing team. Samantha has great experience dealing with all aspects of residential property and a wealth of contacts and knowledge.
“We previously worked together more than a decade ago at another law firm when Samantha had just commenced her legal training. I am therefore delighted to have the opportunity to work with Samantha again.
“We also congratulate Jessica on her promotion to what is an important role within the residential team. She will be working closely with Samantha and the rest of the team to ensure our property clients and referrers get the best possible service and support.
“These appointments represent a significant investment in our residential property team.
