Location / Yeovil


I am a senior associate solicitor with the firm having qualified within a local smaller practice in the area in 2012.  

I studied law at the University of the West of England (Bristol UWE) where I obtained a first class degree, as well as a masters degree from Bristol University. I then completed the Legal Practice Course back at Bristol UWE in order to qualify as a solicitor.  

I now head up the Yeovil residential department and manage the team, dealing primarily with residential freehold and leasehold sale and purchase transactions, but also some commercial sale and purchases for companies. My expertise further lies with re-mortgages, transfer of equity matters, right to buy from social landlords and those using the Help to Buy and the Help to Buy ISA Bonus Scheme for first time buyers.  

In addition, I have previously spent several years dealing with property disputes, repossessions and all manner of housing issues covering a whole range of landlord and tenant queries and therefore this has assisted me in dealing with some of the transactions I deal with for property investors and landlords today.  

Having lived in Yeovil for many years and now in the surrounding area, I have a wide range of local knowledge when it comes to selling and buying properties in South Somerset and beyond and have dealt with many new home purchases in the large developments nearby including in Yeovil, Martock as well as further into Dorset and Devon.  

My ethos of dealing with all transactions meticulously, yet efficiently has stood me in good stead when many of my clients have returned to me again and again and have recommended me to their friends and family, which is always a pleasure to see. A great number of clients have tight timescales they need to work towards and I endeavour to do my very utmost to achieve a quick completion turnaround for them wherever possible.  

In my spare time I thoroughly enjoy walks in the beautiful countryside near to my home, socialising with friends and family, dining in different pubs and restaurants and going to the gym when I can force myself to go!  

“Pat and I would just like to thank you and the team at Battens for all the support and focus that went in to making this change happen, often against the odds! Well done and thanks again – it was a journey – as they say but you and the team there kept it as smooth as possible.”


"We would like to say a big thank you for all your assistance with our sale and purchase. You made a stressful experience bearable with your support. I certainly would recommend you to others if they are moving house just for communication alone!"

"Ross was excellent and the supporting staff too. Always responded to queries and was very calm and efficient. I have already recommended him to a friend who is selling a property."
