Amanda Barlow LLB (Hons)
Amanda manages the Framlingham office and specialises in residential sales, purchases, mortgages, equity release and related matters as well as undertaking Will preparation and some Probate,
After completing her LLB, Amanda took Articles with a sole practitioner in Cumbria where, principally, she undertook private client work. Qualifying in 1984, she moved on to the wider opportunities offered by blue chip firms in the City. There she focused on residential property and the commercial world, in particular institutional investors. Such work included new developments, joint ventures, secured lending and insolvency.
She and her husband Raymond Thompson later practiced together in Diss, Norfolk, undertaking a very wide range of non-contentious matters covering property and the licensed trade. On the sale of their practice and a stint in Aldeburgh undertaking property litigation, in 2015 she joined Cross Ram & Co where her calm professionalism is much appreciated.
Her broad experience enables her to act as a bridge to services in the main Halesworth office, in that she can assess initial instructions and pass on to the appropriate Commercial or Probate & Trusts specialist.
