Areas of Practice


I am a solicitor in the Commercial Property team at Downie & Gadban. I have over ten years’ experience in commercial property work, gained in both London City practices and Legal 500 ranked firms in Surrey and Hampshire.

I act for a variety of clients, focusing on commercial landlord and tenant matters, and commercial acquisitions and disposals.

Areas of Expertise


An experienced commercial property solicitor, Sarah advises both individuals and companies on general commercial property work. She has a particular focus on commercial landlord and tenant, commercial property acquisitions and disposals. She acts for both landlords and tenants in matters including the granting and taking of new leases, lease renewals, assignments, sublettings and surrenders.

Approachable and responsive, Sarah provides a tailored service to her clients. She takes the time to understand her clients’ individual needs so that her advice is not only legally robust but also practical and workable.


    Sarah qualified in 2007, having trained at Pritchard Englefield Solicitors in the City of London. She moved on qualification to Dechert LLP, working in the Real Estate team.

    In 2008, Sarah relocated to the Surrey/Hampshire border and joined Penningtons Solicitors LLP in the Basingstoke office. She acted for private individuals and companies on general commercial property and commercial landlord and tenant matters, as well as assisting with housing association development work.

    In 2012, Sarah took a career break to spend time with her young family. She returned to practice in 2015, working for the next five years at Herrington Carmichael LLP in the Real Estate team, where she specialised in commercial landlord and tenant, acquisitions and disposals.

    In November 2020, Sarah joined Downie & Gadban Solicitors in Alton as a solicitor in the Commercial Property team.
