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."

"Impeccable, efficient, thorough, great communication - all round excellent service. I would highly recommend."
