Layna Thompson joined Palmers Solicitors in June 2017 as an Associate Solicitor in our residential property team, based at our Rayleigh office.
She qualified as a solicitor in March 2011 whist working for a London-based law firm, where she initially specialised in defending criminal confiscation, asset forfeiture, fraud and money laundering.
Layna developed an interest in property law because assets often had to be sold at the conclusion of the criminal case.
Layna has a wealth of experience in relation to buying and selling leasehold properties, lease extensions, Right to Buy transactions, transfers of equity and all other general property matters. She made the ‘Rising Star’ list in the Super Lawyer awards in 2014 and 2015, published in The Telegraph.
Away from the office, Layna loves to participate in sport, teach dance and spend as much time as possible with her twin sons.
