Battens Solicitors are delighted to announce the promotion of Jason Carr to Associate Solicitor.

Jason’s promotion follows the opening of Battens’ Castle Cary office back in 2018. The firm had been successfully running weekly legal clinics in the market town since 2015 and the demand for conveyancing services, and private client matters in particular, had prompted them to establish a permanent base providing their services to the area and beyond.

Jason has headed Battens’ residential property services in the town and specialises in sales, purchases, transfer of equity and remortgage transactions.

Commenting on his promotion, Jason says, “Three years at the Castle Cary office has flown by. I was delighted to be given the opportunity to build on Battens' excellent reputation for conveyancing services in the South West, and expand our offices to a new area. Conveyancing during a time of a global pandemic has not been without its issues and challenges, but ensuring a prompt and successful outcome for our clients is, and always has been, my main priority. The office’s success is also thanks to the support and hard work of my legal assistant Lucy King and the Castle Cary team.

Battens have been extremely supportive throughout my career, having trained and qualified with the firm. I am grateful for my promotion in recognition of my hard work and commitment to the company, especially in what has been a particularly challenging year.”

Sarah Ford, Head of Residential Property said, “Jason has done an excellent job of establishing our residential property services in our Castle Cary office. It’s great to see him and the Castle Cary team go from strength-to-strength.”

Battens offices are open and operating within current government guidelines.
