Victoria Howlett

Professional Support Lawyer


Victoria is a Professional Support Lawyer in the Property Disputes team.

With a background in agricultural property litigation and business development and marketing, Victoria’s role as a Professional Support Lawyer has evolved from focusing on delivering the more traditional technical knowledge support to the team by way of know-how, legal updates and training to also encompassing a wider client knowledge focus on business relationships and strategic partnerships.

Victoria trained at a leading South West firm in Bristol where she qualified as an agricultural property litigator in 2002. After several years in practice, Victoria’s legal career transitioned away from fee earning and into business support. She went on to accrue over 10 years’ experience of knowledge, business development and marketing at two very different South West law firms before moving to Ashfords in March 2024.
