Career Highlights

  • Jason Waghorne joined the commercial team at Sharp Young & Pearce in 2012 before the firm went on to merge with Rothera Dowson in 2016
  • Became an Associate at Rotheras in 2018


“We have used Rothera Sharp for many years, having previously instructed them for properties and wills and our previous experience made us want to use the firm again. It also really made a difference to have local branches that we could go into to sign paperwork. Jason was very genuine and had a human approach as well as an appreciation for our level of financial circumstances and limits. He also understood who Hollies are as a company. He was very proactive about speaking to the other party via phone and was also upfront with us about costs; when you have a lot on your plate anyway it helped us to know where we would be. We would definitely use Rothera Sharp again and recommend them to others. ”
Becky and Andrew Pike, Hollies Day Nurseries
“Jason assisted us when we were moving our business into new premises. He looked over the proposed lease and explained all the relevant sections in a way we could easily understand. He also provided great advice as to why we should in certain areas push back on the proposed wording as this could impact us in the future. The communication from Jason was excellent throughout the process and gave us the confidence to sign the revised lease on the best terms negotiated. I would recommend Jason and his team at Rotheras to look over your commercial leases and contracts as they will certainly add valuable insight and advice.”
Paul Hartle, Director of Coversure Nottingham
“Rotheras have provided a very professional service in dealing with the sale of Smallway, with the various parties, the developer, their solicitors, surveyors and keeping us, the owners, appraised of progress. Rotheras provided all the legal support to conclude a successful sale of the land at Smallway to the benefit of all parties. I would recommend Rotheras to anybody requiring legal services. I have used your practice twice now, both times with successful outcome.”

Easements: when could an interference arise with my ability to exercise a right of way?

The recent case of Vance & Vance v Collerton & Collerton has illustrated that if it is not unreasonable to insist on the continued luxury of a widely granted right of way, an actionable interference will occur even if the person benefiting from the right is left with reasonable access.
