Sydney-based law firm Owen Hodge has expanded to the north shore, following a merger with a sole practitioner.
Owen Hodge Lawyers has merged with Sandra Littlewood Solicitors, further expanding the firm’s operations to Sydney’s north shore. A sole practitioner, Sandra Littlewood has been practising in Turramurra for almost 40 years – and will continue to do so under Owen Hodge Solicitors.
Ms Littlewood is joined by property and estates solicitor Sally Richmond, who is also local to the area. Together, they will assist and advise local clients with matters of property conveyancing, estate planning, will drafting, deceased estates and probate law.
According to the firm, the merger will further bolster Owen Hodge Lawyers’ reach in Sydney’s north shore, leveraging Ms Littlewood’s extensive knowledge base, expertise and network.
Ms Littlewood was admitted as a solicitor to the Supreme Court in July 1977. After her admission, she began working at a family firm at Milsons Point until April 1984 before deciding to go into sole practice and establishing Sandra Littlewood Solicitors. She was also on the board of directors for Tresillian Family Care for 20 years, during which time she served as vice-president and president.
Prior to working as a solicitor, Ms Richmond spent a number of years in the advertising and communications sector and continued working full-time in senior management roles throughout most of her legal studies. Since being admitted as a solicitor, she has spent a number of years within the legal profession demonstrating her grasp of the law as well as the transferability and added value of her professional skills.
Commenting on the news, Owen Hodge Lawyers managing partner Rolf Howard said that he was excited about the recent merger and welcomed the two new additions to the Owen Hodge team.
“Sandra and Sally are invaluable additions to the Owen Hodge Lawyers family. A highly experienced and astute legal mind, Sandra has grown her practice over nearly four decades, sharing her sharp legal insights with the local community in Turramurra and surrounds,” he said.
“We look forward to working closely with Sandra and Sally to further expand our offering in Sydney’s north shore.”
