People / Helen Barker
I am a Commercial Property Solicitor, and I joined Hatch Brenner as Head of Commercial Property in May 2019.
I deal with a broad range of general commercial property matters, working with businesses and individuals on matters including the sale and purchase of commercial property with associated business for sale, leasehold disposals and acquisitions, and landlord and tenant matters. I have particular expertise within the food and drink sector having worked with many pubs, café and restaurant business owners.
I have broad and wide-ranging legal experience, and have chosen to specialise in Commercial Property. I enjoy being client-focused and can apply my breadth of experience to tailor my service in line with the objectives of my clients. Each transaction is unique and I combine attention to detail with a pragmatic approach to ensure my clients’ business needs are promptly met.
I completed my Solicitor training with Hansells, Norwich, qualifying in 2011. I have previously worked at North Norfolk District Council and most recently Pope Solicitors in Cromer working across departments including Family, Private Client, and Residential and Commercial Property.
Active in Norwich networking, I also enjoy writing industry articles. Outside of work I enjoy spending time with my family, running, singing, baking, reading, and watching films.
