A well-regarded conveyancing executive, Ben Wilson has over 10 years’ industry experience with specialisms in social housing, real estate, part exchange and new build plot purchase and sales. He’s currently studying for the Level 6 Council for Licensed Conveyancers (CLC) qualification.

Harriet Findlay, in her role at Switalskis, will support the fee-earning team across all areas of transactional work. Harriet has worked in legal services for three years, two of those as a conveyancing assistant. She completed her Masters in Law in 2023 and is due to complete her Legal Practice Course in 2025.

Switalskis new build team was established a decade ago by director and head of new build conveyancing, Richard Wisnia. This year the team received national recognition for providing top client service to new home buyers at the British Conveyancing awards. In addition, Switalskis has recently joined the prestigious ranks of The Sunday Times Best Places to Work.

Richard Wisnia says: “Technical excellence and outstanding client care are at the heart of everything we do. To make sure we meet these standards as we continue to grow, our recruitment is carefully targeted. This is why I’m especially pleased to welcome both Ben and Harriet to the team. They’re both incredibly talented individuals whose ethos and values fit perfectly with our team, as we look to continue our successes and growth in the future.”

 Switalskis new build department supports clients with buying new build homes and related sale transactions including part-exchange schemes. It also advises on retirement living and shared ownership leases and First Homes and Forces Help to Buy Scheme purchases.
