Ian Bradshaw B.A. (Hons) LLB 150 150 Eldridges

Associate Director / Solicitor

Our Team, Private Clients, Property

Ian went to Exeter University to obtain a degree in Politics and subsequently to the College of Law in Guildford to obtain a degree in Law. Having qualified as a solicitor in 2010 he gained knowledge and experience at another local firm prior to joining Eldridges in January 2021.

Ian specialises in residential property and private client work, enjoying the variety each aspect provides. He regularly takes instructions from clients both local and further afield and many return to seek his advice in future matters knowing they will get an objective, professional service and a high level of client care and compassion in more sensitive matters.

In his spare time he enjoys the countryside and attending sporting events including rugby, cricket and horse racing.

Cowes boy and English graduate Adam came to the law after an initial career with British Aerospace. There his dealings with export contracts made him wonder about a career as a lawyer, and he returned to college to study.

Although he planned to do commercial law he found in his first practice in Portsmouth that he was particularly suited to private client work, and at Eldridges, with whom he has been since 2006, he deals with Wills, Probate and Trusts. His sensitivity to the needs of people at a time of bereavement enables him to guide them through the legal technicalities in a sympathetic and professional way.

Adam is a qualified Trust and Estate Practitioner, and in setting up and administering Trusts and Wills, Adam sometimes has to tread what can be a sensitive tightrope. A beyond-the-grave wish may have practical implications for offspring with previous partners, and Adam’s knowledge and experience makes for straightforward and helpful solutions.

Tax burdens are a worry to those making provision for their loved ones, and by constantly updating his knowledge as laws change Adam can help clients through complex or confusing situations.

Adam is a family man with three children. He plays guitar, once in a band but now simply for pleasure and at his local church.

Sarah, one of three partners in the firm, heads up the team in Freshwater, encouraging a friendly, open approach to clients, welcoming personal visitors and telephone enquirers equally.

Sarah took a different route from her colleagues to becoming a solicitor. Rather than studying law at University she went through the Legal Executive route, which meant she was working and training at the same time, and she jokes that she had to work twice as hard as her colleagues for her qualification. Certainly her commitment to hard work has never left her.

She has been with Eldridges since 2003. She specialises in private client work, which means giving clients advice on Wills, Probate and Lasting Power of Attorney, and considered it important to gain the extra qualification of a Trust and Estate Practitioner, something not compulsory but which is becoming an industry standard.

Because many of her local clients are elderly she is more than happy to visit them in their homes for no extra charge, and her friendly, practical manner puts them at their ease.

When she isn’t working Sarah will be enjoying the Isle of Wight countryside with her dog.
