Stone King has welcomed two more experienced solicitors to its fast-growing legal teams.

Philip Askew joins the firm as an associate solicitor in the London residential property department while solicitor Sarah Eden begins work with Stone King’s dispute resolution team.

Mr Askew previously worked for the family law firm Askews Solicitors in North Yorkshire, where he followed his elder brother, father, grandfather and great uncle into a legal career. His experience covers all the main fields of property law including freehold and leasehold sales and purchases including high-value transactions, remortgages, transfers of equity, and drafting residential leases and deeds.

Ms Eden, who previously worked at law firms Osborne Clarke, Eversheds and Irwin Mitchell, has advised on a broad range of contentious probate disputes, acting for both private clients and financial institutions, including claims involving fraud, estoppel, undue influence and family inheritance.

Stone King’s managing partner Steven Greenwood said: ‘Sarah has wide experience helping both commercial and personal clients resolve legal disputes while Philip has expertise in many areas of residential property law.

‘I’m therefore pleased to welcome them to our fast-growing team here at Stone King where their specialist skills will be much in demand.’
