Adam Fletcher

Director, Head of Pontefract - South Elmsall Office
Department: Residential Property

Adam is a Director & Head of our Pontefract office.

Adam was appointed Managing Director in 2012-2018, having previously held the role of Technology and Business Development Partner with the firm for the previous 12 months. Adam comments: “This was without doubt the most challenging but rewarding chapter of my career to date having started the role back in 2012 as one of the youngest MD’s in the country. During this period I was responsible for strategically developing our various niches with associated growth in excesses of 25%. We attracted inspiring talent and enabled those within the organisation to progress. This is only a small part of Ridley and Hall’s fantastic 90 year history but something I am immensely proud of.”

Adam is a residential property specialist with over 15 years experience. Adam joined the team having previously been a Partner at a well established West Yorkshire practice where he headed up the estate agency and lettings division and co-ordinated the IT systems.

Adam deals with all aspects of residential conveyancing including; sales, purchases, leases, new build sales and plot purchases, re-mortgages, transfers of equity, shared ownership and equity releases.

His proactive approach and commitment to providing a personal and high level service has proved popular with his large nationwide client base, but with a particular following in the Wakefield and Five Towns region. National builders, a leading building society, housing associations and various financial advisers actively recommend Adam to their clients.

In recent years Adam has developed a niche London client base of fellow solicitors, accountants and dentists. He regularly represents residential property investment buyers with substantive property portfolios.

Adam is passionate about promoting quality legal services which are available on the high street and the optimisation of IT systems to ensure an effective and efficient client experience.

In 2014, Adam helped create Kirklees Dementia Action Alliance (KDAA) and was honoured to be appointed chair. Since his appointment, Adam has become a Dementia Friends Champion and been asked to speak at various events about the promotion of the Alliance and to raise awareness of those living with dementia and their carers.

Since joining Ridley & Hall in 2010, Adam has become a keen supporter of Huddersfield University, in particular the law department and Law Clinic. He has been invited to attend on regular occasions to assist with training sessions for the students and the Law Clinic concerning client care.

Adam is a Trustee of Kirklees Active Leisure and a governor at Castleford Academy.

Away from the office Adam is currently renovating a mixed residential and commercial unit. He enjoys great food and company and can often be found cutting up the pistes in the Alps.
