Wilkin Chapman strengthens commercial property team

Sarah Diak has joined the Beverley branch of Wilkin Chapman as a member of the commercial property team.

Born in Hull, Mrs Diak went to St Mary’s College before studying law at Northumbria University where she graduated with first class honours. She carved out her specialism while training and starting her career at a law firm in Hull.

“I’m a self-confessed property nerd and I find property law to be very interesting and varied,” she said.

Sarah, who has a young son, said she was attracted to Wilkin Chapman due to its regional reach and flexible working ethos.

“It was time for the next stage of my career and I am very happy to have joined a firm that has such an excellent reputation for its work and its employee relations. I have been made to feel very welcome.”

Sarah will be involved in day-to-day landlord and tenant work, along with commercial property sales, purchases and refinances. She will also be assisting the wider firm, in particular on property-related insolvency matters.

Also joining Sarah in the Beverley office is commercial property executive, Brian Gray.

With 17 years’ experience in local government, Brian will be working directly with high-profile clients assisting on major projects relating to development which will benefit the community.

“I’m passionate about delivering a great service to my clients. I believe everyone should have access to the law and strive to ensure clients are satisfied with what we can do for them as a firm,” Brian said.

Brian, who is also a published author, is looking forward to working locally, helping the people of Beverley and surrounding areas.

Wilkin Chapman, which reported record-breaking turnover for its services provided to businesses and individuals during the last financial year, recently appointed two partners to its growing team of 47 people in Beverley.

The practice as a whole has nearly 400 partners and staff working across five offices and is the largest law firm in East Yorkshire and Lincolnshire.

In early July, Wilkin Chapman announced that it was paying every member of staff a one-off bonus of £1,000 to help with the cost of living crisis.

It also has an extensive Employee Assistance Programme which includes a range of wellbeing initiatives, a comprehensive healthcare scheme, and other benefits aimed at contributing to a happy and healthy workforce.
