Property partner for Hambros

CORPORATE property company Hambro Countrywide Relocation has appointed a head of legal to take charge of its conveyancing team.

Robert Sala, a former property partner with West End firm Jacobson Ridley, will oversee a legal team of 15 and will also provide corporate advice.

The position was created to broaden the scope of legal services in-house.

Sala joined the company last year on a temporary basis and was formally appointed head of legal and company secretary after a review of the in-house team. He is the company's only fully qualified solicitor.
