Welcome Arvin Bhamra!

Arvin Bhamra has joined Coventry city centre based Band Hatton Button as an Associate in their residential property team, which has taken nearly 1,000 enquiries in the last quarter and is currently operating at 116 per cent of its annual financial target.

Bhamra, a qualified solicitor , has 15 years of experience across residential and commercial conveyancing, as well as real estate finance work.

Career highlights include acting in a deal which saw the transfer of 5,000 houses from a council to a housing association, and working on a £95 million loan for a portfolio of 15,000 properties.

“Demand for residential conveyancing keeps growing, particularly in Coventry, and this is a great opportunity for me to join a busy team and build on that reputation ” said Bhamra.

“I’ve spent a lot of time gaining rounded knowledge of the conveyancing industry and residential property was what I first practised in, so this role is a homecoming for me.

“I’ve joined a department and firm that is experiencing growth consistently year-on-year, and coupled with opportunities for long-term progression within the firm, that was an opportunity I couldn’t turn down.” 

Sarah Avern is Head of Residential Property at Band Hatton Button, with the department’s recent growth aided by the firm’s new online tool, which can produce a residential conveyancing quote in one minute.

“Arvin has varied, sought-after experience under her belt and an impressive CV, so we are thrilled to welcome her to our team,” said Avern.

“Not only is this a coup for our team which now stands at 14 people, but her experience means she can lend her expertise and provide referrals to our commercial property team.

“We are continuing to grow as a department in line with Coventry’s popularity as a place to live whether it is because of our range of manufacturing employers we have based in our region, landlords expanding their property portfolio or first time buyers climbing on to the property ladder.

“Digitising our services is key to capitalise on this market activity. We are currently converting around three quarters of online conveyancing enquiries into customers, and we expect this service to expand even further in the near future.”

Double Award Winning Solicitors

Our two awards!

We’re Double Award Winning Solicitors!

Leading Coventry and Warwickshire law firm Band Hatton Button has landed double recognition at a prestigious awards ceremony.

The Coventry city centre-based solicitors scooped the Contribution to the Community and Leadership Team of the Year awards at the Coventry Telegraph Business Awards 2018 in front of hundreds of people at the Ricoh Arena.

It comes off the back of a bumper period of fundraising for the 82-strong firm for their chosen charity of the year – Shine A Light Support Service – which supports families affected by childhood cancer. 

Band Hatton Button’s Charity Ball last May saw £10,000 raised for charity, and has also seen staff members assist Shine A Light in moving premises.

Staff members also took part in Dementia Awareness Week in support of the Alzheimer’s Society, and have also organised a quiz for the Rotary Club of Kenilworth which raised around £2,000 for Zoe’s Place Baby Hospice.

A range of charity and volunteering work has dovetailed with a strong year of performance for Band Hatton Button, which has seen their turnover increase by six per cent in the 12 months to April 2018, driven by the Midlands’ buoyant property market.

Band Hatton Button’s board has also moved to futureproof the growing business by converting the board into an Alternative Business Structure – enabling the firm to diversify its services and attract additional expertise and investment should the need ever arise.

Mark Moseley, managing director at Band Hatton Button, said: “We are extremely proud to have been recognised as the best business in the region in terms of community work as well as leadership.

“We place great emphasis on making our firm a great place to work – providing fundraising opportunities and reserving time for team-building, through to ensuring there are routes for career progression – and having a happy, motivated workforce is reflected in our recent performance both commercially and in the community.

“Receiving these awards is great news and recognition for us as we aim to embark on another year of growth.”
