Location / Sherborne

I am a solicitor in the Residential Conveyancing Team based in the Sherborne office. My work includes sales and purchases, transfers of equity and re-mortgage transactions.  

I gained my degree in law at Cambridge University in 1983 and qualified as a solicitor in 1987. After a long career specialising in Corporate Tax in the city, I came out of retirement in 2015 to start a new career as a residential conveyancer, spending time both in Bournemouth and Bridport before joining Battens in September 2017.  

In my spare time, my partner and I keep bees and raise rare breed pigs. I also enjoy gardening and keeping fit by swimming, going to the gym and pilates.


"Jenny Cottrell was extremely diligent and patient to ensure any queries or concerns that I had were answered and all the staff that I have come across within Battens have been very welcoming in both person and via the telephone."

"Jenny was fantastic - felt like she was always up to speed and proactive with getting things done and I was kept in the loop all the way through. Wendy was also great and able to help with all my queries.  Having had real frustrations working with professionals at various points, it was a welcome relief to work with Jenny & Wendy and I would certainly use you again in the future and recommend you to all family and friends.  Thank you."
