Property Executive retires after 38 years with the firm

17 April 2014

Paul Riggall of Wilkin Chapman Grange has retired after 38 years with the firm; leaving his successor, Richard Brown, with large shoes to fill.

Paul joined Wilkin Chapman in 1976 and has specialised in property work throughout his years with the firm – dealing with domestic sales and purchases, transfers of property and remortgages.

He was first based at the firm’s previous offices on Grimsby Road in Cleethorpes, and in 1991, moved to the firm’s Louth office in Cornmarket where he remained for the rest of his working life.

Richard Brown has joined the property team in Louth bringing with him a wealth of experience. He has dealt with residential property matters for over 20 years and qualified as a Licensed Conveyancer in 2001. Richard will help clients with domestic house sales and purchases, transfers of property and remortgages. He also has considerable experience in dealing with housing association shared ownership transactions and the Government's 'help to buy' schemes.

Paul said, "After 38 years I will be sad to leave Wilkin Chapman Grange and my colleagues behind. I have seen the firm change and evolve over the years, experiencing extensive growth and I wish them, and Richard, all the best for the future."

Branch partner of the Louth office, Jim Judge, said, “Paul has been an invaluable member of our team and fantastic to work with. We thank him for all he has done over the past 38 years with the firm.”

Chief executive, Julia Whittaker, said, "Paul has been a loyal long standing member of our firm and we thank him for all he has done. He will be missed by the partners and staff who all wish him a long, healthy and happy retirement.

“We welcome Richard to the firm - his experience and knowledge is a real asset for our clients – both existing and new. His appointment is a reflection of our commitment to ensure that clients, both old and new, continue to receive a first class legal service."
