Durham Solicitors Expand Its Team…

Posted:21st March 2018

A LEADING NORTH East firm of solicitors has expanded its team – and at the same time added another string to its bow.

Durham-based EMG Solicitors is growing its team, following the appointment of commercial property associate solicitor, Gwen Jones, who has more than a decade of experience working in this sector.

The company has an award-winning residential conveyancing department and its decision to also offer commercial property advice was as a direct response to requests from clients.

Gwen (35) has worked in firms across the region including Ward Hadaway, Gordon Brown Law Firm and Mincoffs Solicitors, providing advice on a wide range of commercial property transactions.

She acts for regional and national businesses and SMEs, property investors, charities and pension funds advising on their commercial property needs.

“I am a firm believer in the importance of understanding the client’s business and will always take the time to get to know the individuals, their business and their team of advisors to achieve the best outcome for them,” she said.

“ I am very excited to be part of a company with the reputation that EMG Solicitors have and to help the business grow with the introduction of a commercial property offering for our clients.”

Managing Director, Emma Gaudern, said she was delighted Gwen had decided to join EMG.

“We realised because of the number of requests and inquiries we were getting that we needed to have a commercial property service for our clients,” said Emma.

“And Gwen is a perfect fit for our team, bringing with her a wealth of relevant experience.”

Gwen is the latest in a number of new recruits to the firm, which is based at Abbeywoods Business Park.

Also joining the team is Emma Rickaby who has taken up the role of Quality and Compliance Manager, along with Nahdia Bloundele as support for the firm’s nationally-renowned Court of Protection division and chartered legal executive Michael Costelloe, who is responsible for the day-to-day management of Court of Protection matters.

EMG Solicitors was set up by Emma Gaudern in 2014 and now has 23 staff, working across a range of sectors including Court of Protection, Wills, Trusts and Probate, family law, litigation, conveyancing and Lasting Power of Attorney
