We're expanding our Gatwick Office

We’re growing our Real Estate and Corporate teams in our Gatwick office with two new hires!

We are delighted to announce the appointment of Emma van Klaveren, as a Principal in the Real Estate team, and John Connolly, as a solicitor in the Corporate team, at our Gatwick office.

Emma, who joins from PDT, trained at Thomas Eggar, qualifying in 2003 as a commercial property
solicitor. She has acted for clients in various high profile acquisitions, and has built considerable experience in leading and managing teams.

John joins having worked at Acumen Business Law, a specialist business law firm in the South East. He advises major companies on a range of corporate law matters.

The announcement follows the appointment in June 2018 of Tariq Sayfoo who joined the Gatwick office as a specialist IP/IT and commercial lawyer.

We want to demonstrate our commitment to expanding our presence in the area. The Gatwick office, which opened in April 2018, is our third, and complements our offices in Milton Keynes and in Chancery Lane, London.

Ian Morris, our Chairman comments: “Our strategy to offer industry-leading legal advice for businesses in the Gatwick area benefits by having someone of Emma’s calibre join our Gatwick office.”

“The talent in our Gatwick office shows businesses in the Surrey and Sussex area that there is a top quality alternative to London firms. Lawyers with knowledge of the regional market are hugely advantageous to local businesses seeking legal advice.”

Emma van Klaveren, Principal in our Real Estate team, says, “My move to the new Gatwick office is an opportunity for me to be part of an ambitious growing firm.”

John Connolly, Solicitor in our Corporate team, says: “EMW offers regional businesses the tailored service you’d expect from a boutique firm, but executed to the high standards of a major City practice.”
