Originally from Catterick but now living in Gateshead, Ms Kerr read law at the University of Surrey and completed her training at a firm in Newcastle in 2008. She has since practised law in Leeds before returning to Darlington with Latimer Hinks.
Sabine said: "It is like walking down memory lane returning to Darlington, which is a lovely town to live and work in. Having worked in the town before, I was aware of Latimer Hinks and its excellent reputation, so I am delighted to be part of the team and am looking forward to making a positive impact.
"Over the years I have gained a lot of experience from working with a variety of different clients, and I am excited to be back working in Darlington with such a well-renowned firm. It is an excellent chance for me to progress in the industry and achieve my long-term goals, and I am grateful for the opportunity.
Anne Elliott, marketing partner at Latimer Hinks Solicitors, said: "I am delighted to welcome Sabine to the firm. Her vast experience and commitment to her work make her a valuable asset to the commercial property team, and I would like to wish her well on behalf of everyone at the firm.
