Devonshires bolsters Leeds office with hire of landlord and tenant specialist from local authority

Law firm Devonshires has bolstered its Leeds office with the hire of experienced landlord and tenant lawyer Sara Mondon from Kirklees Council.

Mondon worked for Kirklees, where she was a Senior Legal Officer, for 11 years. Prior to this she held a number of compliance and legal roles at the Office for National Statistics, Leeds City Council and the Department for Work and Pensions.

She will join the firm’s national Housing Management & Property Litigation team, headed by Donna McCarthy.

At Kirklees Mondon managed a varied litigation caseload mainly relating to landlord and tenant work. This included advice and possession claims on management grounds and injunction claims due to anti-social behaviour and nuisance, defending adverse possession claims, claims for trespass, disrepair breach of covenant and dilapidations and other general property litigation.

Devonshires opened in Leeds in 2017. It now has a team of 25, including six partners.

Gary Grigor, joint head of the office, said: “I am delighted to welcome Sara to Devonshires. Her experience will be invaluable, and further strengthens our offering for our clients based in the north.”
