Leading Basingstoke law firm, Lamb Brooks, is very pleased to announce the appointment of Melanie Roberts to Head of Commercial Property.


Melanie is an energetic and dedicated solicitor who has specialised in property law over the last 15 years of working in the legal industry. She became an associate in January 2019 and this latest promotion will see her leading the firm’s commercial property department who deal with a range of services for property investors, businesses, landlords and tenants of commercial buildings.


Having grown up in Basingstoke, Melanie has a fantastic passion for the town seeing it develop and change over the years.  Melanie takes an active role in the Basingstoke BID (Business Improvement District) and is inspired to help make positive changes to the town centre area where many people live, work and do business. She advises and acts for many business owners in the town, in London and across the South.


Commenting on her new position, Melanie said: “I am delighted to head up the Commercial Property department at Lamb Brooks. It is certainly an area of law that clients appreciate clear, proactive advice on. It has technical aspects, navigating complex leases and contracts but also allows me to develop a long-lasting relationship with clients as I get to share in their excitement and business growth”. Melanie added, “We are in for some tricky times ahead as the country recovers from the coronavirus crisis, however clients will be looking for more guidance as they may need flexibility with their commercial leases and business plans going forward.”


Managing Partner, Andrew Lowe, comments on the firm’s latest news: “The Partners at Lamb Brooks are pleased to see Melanie take on a senior managerial role at the firm. Her passion for our local area and excellent client service has always been recognised and I’m sure she will succeed at driving this department forward”.


This positive news comes as the law firm reopened their doors to the public on Monday 15 June 2020 after a period of remote working to continue helping clients.
