An experience commercial property lawyer has joined Clarion’s growing Real Estate team as a legal director.

Over the last two decades, Gill Farry has worked for an array of major law firms in Leeds, acting for a wide range of clients, including many within the retail and leisure sector.

This has provided Ms Farry with experience in taking and granting leases for a national supermarket and dealing with property matters for several businesses that either operate on the high street or within multi let shopping centres and retail and industrial estates.

“Clarion’s Real Estate practice is renowned for the focus it places on building close, long-term relationships with clients. This very much fits with my own approach,” she said.

Martin Grange, head of Clarion’s Real Estate practice, said: “We are very fortunate to have someone joining the team with Gill’s strong track record in commercial property law and specialist knowledge in the retail and leisure sectors.

“Over the last couple of years, we’ve seen huge growth in demand for our services and have doubled the size of the team in response – with four partners and now four legal directors, we have become one of the largest dedicated teams in Yorkshire.”
