Jane Laird


Jane is a Solicitor in the Commercial Department assisting and running her own caseload following a return from a career break having previously practised as a solicitor in the city of London.

She has worked as a commercial property fee earner for 5 years. In that time she has dealt with a variety of landlord and tenant work, including the grant of leases, surrenders and assignments, sale and purchase work including freehold and leasehold and re-financing transactions.

What Jane says:

With a family background in construction and property it was inevitable land law was my favourite subject at Leicester University. After completing my legal practice course in Chester I trained at a traditional firm in the Temple which gave me a broad range of experiences. Upon qualification as a solicitor I moved to an international law firm in the City to practice commercial property. During this time I worked for a variety of clients from start ups to large telecom companies and this included working on acquisitions and disposals, landlord and tenant and property finance.

I moved back to Kent in 2010 and I am delighted to be working for Martin Tolhurst in the commercial property department. I enjoy the negotiation of a commercial property transaction and ensuring my client’s future use or investment in a property is fully maximised.

Outside of work, I love spending time with my family, two dogs, two ponies and five hens.

If I were not a solicitor, I would be...
