Gateley Legal expands Leeds property team as office celebrates ten years

Gateley Legal has expanded its Leeds property team with four new appointments spanning the construction and real estate sectors. The growth coincides with the Leeds office celebrating its tenth anniversary.

Strengthening the offering of the construction team, Hayley Hayes joins as a legal director. Hayes specialises in construction-related dispute issues, including fire safety matters and will support housebuilder, developer and property clients. Outside of work, Hayes lectures part-time on the Legal Practice Course at Leeds Beckett University.

Newly qualified solicitor Emma Kenny also joins the construction team. Kenny’s focus will be on fire safety and defect claims, as well as adjudications.

The appointment of new legal director Miranda Stirling boosts the real estate team in Leeds. Stirling has a strong background in asset management work which includes managing the property portfolio for a major national supermarket. Stirling also brings experience in handling acquisitions, disposals and landlord and tenant work. In this role, she will be focusing on large-scale portfolio sales and transactions, as well as landlord and tenant matters.

Amelia Purdy has also joined the real estate team as an associate. Purdy will be supporting the team on a range of matters including commercial property development work, property finance and landlord and tenant matters.

Andrew Johnson, partner and office head of Gateley Legal in Leeds, said: “Gateley Legal is proud to be celebrating a successful decade in Leeds. Over the last ten years we have built a strong client base and significantly increased our presence across Yorkshire and beyond.

“The new additions are a great example of how Gateley Legal is focused on meeting the unique needs of the buoyant construction and property markets to service this region.”

Gateley Legal’s Leeds office was established in 2012 and is now home to an 88-strong property team. In total, there are 123 legal professionals operating from the city centre base.
