New partner for Lodders’ prestige private property service


Law firm Lodders has strengthened its Town and Country Homes prestige property service with the hire of experienced property lawyer Rhiannon Edwards as partner.

Led by Caroline Nemecek, partner in Lodders’ Real Estate practice, the Town and Country Homes team provides tailored, personal legal services and advice for purchasers and sellers of high-value, prestige homes and properties. 

In the new role at Lodders, Rhiannon will deal with the sale and purchase of prestigious properties, utilising her 20-plus years’ experience as a specialist in the conveyancing of high value listed buildings with complex planning histories, new build developments, conveyancing related planning issues, planning enforcement matters, the rectification of defective leases and high value town and country properties. 

Rhiannon joins Lodders from Worcester law firm Stallard, March and Edwards LLP , where she was a partner and Head of Residential Property for six years. Prior to that she was the Chief Legal Officer and Statutory Monitoring Officer for the Brecon Beacons National Park Local Planning Authority.

“Rhiannon is an experienced and respected property lawyer and complements and strengthens our specialist service for purchasers and sellers of prestige private property,”

comments Caroline Nemecek.

“It was a conscious decision to specialise in prestige property and Rhiannon will enhance our Town and Country Homes team, which already has a great reputation locally for specialist knowledge and expertise. 

“Her appointment also means we will be able to continue to develop and grow our offering of a tailored personal property service for high net worth individuals, which augments the other services for which Lodders is well known, such as our top-ranking family law, private client and commercial property teams.

“Rhiannon also fully understands and supports the team’s ethos of providing a bespoke and personal service to each of our clients, by concentrating on excellence and client care rather than volume of transactions,”

adds Caroline.

“These important values combined with her excellent property law skills, expertise and in particular, her in-depth knowledge of listed buildings and the challenges they present, make her a significant addition to the Town and Country Homes team.”

Of joining Lodders, Rhiannon says:

“My unique planning background and experience of prosecuting listed building and planning offences is why I specialise in the conveyancing of listed buildings and properties with complex planning histories, together with extensive experience in the sale of properties with neighbour disputes. When Caroline shared her vision for the direction of the Town and Country Homes team, I knew the firm, team and position are the perfect opportunity to fully utilize my expertise and passion.

“Lodders has a fantastic reputation for providing outstanding legal advice and exceptional service, and I am relishing the move to a prestigious firm and working with Caroline to support the ongoing development of Lodders' high value residential offering.”
