Olivia Chalmers joined Hunt & Coombs in 2014 and, after completing her training contract with the firm, qualified as a solicitor in March 2017. Olivia has since been promoted to Partner in April 2022.

Olivia has pursued a dual specialism in both Corporate Commercial and Commercial Property work. Olivia’s clients find this to be of particular assistance when their matters overlap both areas, which is often the case with business disposals and acquisitions. Olivia has developed a portfolio of regular clients including established commercial businesses and high net worth private individuals, all of whom appreciate the pragmatic and down to earth advice which Olivia is able to offer.


Olivia regularly advises clients on a range of Corporate Commercial matters, including:

  • Business disposals and acquisitions, including both share and asset transactions;
  • Business set-up and limited company formation;
  • Review and update to articles of association;
  • Preparation of shareholder’s agreements and partnership deeds;
  • Commercial agreements and joint ventures; and
  • General company law issues.

Olivia deals with all aspects of Commercial Property transactions, including:

  • Sale and purchase of freehold and leasehold property;
  • Commercial leases (including new grants, renewals, assignments and subleases);
  • Agreements for lease, overage agreements, option agreements and conditional contracts; and
  • Commercial lending and re-financing arrangements.


"In 40 years of working with solicitor in my profession, I can say that Olivia Chalmers is one of the best."

"The team is adept in acting for a diverse client base of sole traders, start-ups, regional SMEs and leading national brands, among them Anglia Home Furnishings Limited."

"Approachable, good local knowledge and provide an efficient service."

"A long-standing firm in the area, great local knowledge and strong partners."

"Clients praise Chalmers for her ‘expertise and attention to detail', which are 'second to none'."

Olivia Chalmers with whom we worked made the property sale so straightforward and she guided us, with her expertise to a satisfactory conclusion."

I am very happy with the service I have received from Olivia and Hunt & Coombs in general.

"I have nothing but good, positive feedback in relation to the service that we received. We had the pleasure of dealing with Olivia Chalmers. Her work ethic, professional attitude and all round loveliness made our stressful business sale that little bit less stressful. I cannot fault our dealings with Olivia. We have used Hunt and Coombs for several issues over the years and as long as you are there we will continue to use your services. Continued success for all at Hunt & Coombs."
