Experience and expertise

Elaine qualified as a solicitor in 1993.  Prior to that date, Elaine spent many years as a co director of a property development company and latterly managing a substantial property portfolio for an international christian charity.  Elaine therefore has invaluable experience in commerce, which has proved useful in her role as a property lawyer.

Before joining Howell Jones, Elaine held  partnerships for approximately 10 years in the property department of two law firms, one being  a large London practice.

Elaine has practised in a number of areas of law which has given her a wealth of knowledge, adding to her commercial expertise in her property role.  Elaine has specialised in property law in excess of 15 years and deals with freehold and leasehold sales and purchases (including new build), sales and purchases of part (building plots), transfers of equity and re-mortgages.

Outside of work

In her spare time, Elaine enjoys gardening and spending time with her family and friends and vacations to Italy where she has a home by the sea.
