Boys & Maughan has promoted experienced legal secretaries Lauren Corrigan, Demi Constantine and Lyndsey Knowles to the role of paralegal. The three took up their new roles in July 2021.

As paralegals, Lauren, Demi and Lyndsey can now independently assist their own clients with sales and purchases, help to buy, remortgages and transfers of equity.

Lauren’s conveyancing career began in 2014 and she is known for her friendly manner and attention to detail. Demi joined the firm in 2017 and regularly receives feedback from clients who compliment her on how she is highly organised. Lyndsey takes pride in having excellent relationships with local estate agents and other solicitors, which she has built up over 14 years as a residential property specialist.

All three live locally and have done so since childhood, so clients who are new to the area can rest assured that they are familiar with the issues that will be of concern to any purchaser.

Richard Durrant is a partner based at Boys & Maughan’s Margate office and leads our firm’s residential property team. He explained:

“It has always been our policy to actively seek opportunities to promote from within, wherever possible, and we have a long history of staff rising through the ranks.

“Lauren, Demi and Lyndsey are great examples of this approach bringing dividends. They have demonstrated high degrees of competency in their previous roles, and the partnership is delighted to give them their first step up the career ladder. I am confident that all three will make a significant impact as we expand and develop our offering to clients.”

Boys & Maughan now has 26 residential property lawyers and 40 specialist conveyancing legal secretaries and support staff.

Richard and his colleagues plan to further grow Boys & Maughan’s residential property department to meet demand from buyers and sellers across Kent. Expressions of interest from specialists who wish to join our award winning team would be welcome.
