Legal firm welcomes new member of staff

Ford Simey LLP solicitors has welcomed a new member to its team in Honiton.

Paula Land joined the firm in July and brings more than 35 years experience in property transactions to the High Street practice.

“I specialise in conveyancing matters and all aspects of buying, selling, mortgaging and transfering ownership of a property,” says Paula. “It is nice to be able to continue to develop and build relationships with clients old and new and be a point of contact for people who still want the personal touch.”

Paula, who was born and grew up in Honiton, started her legal career as a junior shorthand typist before embarking on a legal executive course – qualifying in 1992. She brings extensive knowledge of the local area to the team at Ford Simey.

In addition to her role as a chartered legal executive, Paula acts as a steward to the trustees of a number of local charities in the town, which she has done for 25 years, and is also involved with Honiton and District Chamber of Commerce and Industry.
