Gemma is a Partner in the Asset Management team.

Specialising in all aspects of commercial and residential property, Gemma acts in connection with all types of commercial property from retail shops, offices and warehouse units to restaurants and bars, for private and corporate landlords and tenants.

She also advises clients who operate in the aviation and logistics, retail and banking sectors.

Gemma deals with sales, purchases and lettings and both conventional and Islamic finance transactions for commercial investment and private clients.

In addition, she undertakes secured lending transactions on behalf of well-known individual lenders in respect of property-related funding arrangements.

Recent examples of how Gemma has supported clients include:

  • regularly handling all property aspects associated with multi-tenanted industrial estates in various parts of the country owned by on-shore and off-shore investor clients. A recent partial renovation at one such local site involved development and letting agreements in order to achieve rearrangements of tenant occupancy at the site before, during and after the works;
  • handling the transactional property portfolio for a well-known nationwide high street retailer;
  • working for a well-known international co-working office space provider in taking a significant lease designed to be a hub for cryptocurrency and blockchain communities; and
  • working with a wide variety of logistics clients to ensure their property portfolios accord with their requirements, for example, in the case of several of the largest international air cargo operating companies, rearranging and coordinating the timing of their occupancy of various airport units and offices to minimise their liability when surrendering all or part of their leases, carrying out works, entering new leases and granting sub-leases.
