Sally Dilks


I joined Buckles in 2013 to set up our French Law department and I’m based at our Stamford office. Previously, I gained extensive experience in practising French law at firms in London and Leeds.

I’m a UK qualified Solicitor with a degree in Law and French and a passion for France. I’m a fluent French speaker, having lived, worked and studied in France for several years. In 2003, I obtained a Masters degree in French Property and Construction Law from Pantheon-Assas University in Paris.

I specialise in matters concerning the purchase and sale of property in France, French succession law, French Wills and the administration of French estates. I can also assist clients with disputes and litigation in France, via the appointment of and liaison with Avocats in France. I work closely with our Family department to assist with the transfer of ownership of French property on divorce or separation.

Over the years, I’ve developed a reputation for attention to detail and delivering a high level of client care.

Outside of work, I can often be seen running through Burghley Park. I also enjoys long walks with friends and family (if my teenage children can be persuaded) and adventures abroad, particularly in France.
