South and West Wales law firm JCP Solicitors has appointed a new Director and Head of Property for the whole of its West Wales region who brings with her several years of experience in major property transactions.
A fluent Welsh speaker, Martha Williams comes to JCP Solicitors from Eversheds Sutherland LLP, where she was a Principal Associate in its Real Estate Group with substantial experience in leasing, investment and development work.
For the past 4 years, Martha has advised a major online retailer on their substantial UK property requirements and their European expansion.
Martha has also advised JP Morgan Asset Management on their acquisitions of the HSBC Tower and Bishops Square Tower in deals with values in excess of £500 million. She has also advised the Canary Wharf Group on the management of the Estate.
Director and Head of Commercial Property at JCP Solicitors, Mark Gilroy, said: “We are delighted to welcome Martha into the JCP fold. Her experience in dealing with high-value property transactions speaks for itself and she brings with her real ambition to consolidate and build upon the important work being carried out by our Residential and Commercial Property teams.”
“Martha also has the kind of respect for her local community that we prize highly here at JCP Solicitors and I know she will be an asset to us both on a professional level and within our local communities.”
Martha said: “I am very pleased to join JCP Solicitors to manage the property teams in West Wales. The teams are already established as highly regarded advisers in their communities and I am looking forward to building on the great work and guiding the teams to further success.
“Having grown up in Carmarthen and now living in Pembrokeshire, the change of firms is an exciting prospect as it allows me to work with independent local businesses and become involved in servicing a more local community. My family and I greatly appreciate the beautiful county we live in and an opportunity to spend more time here, is very welcome”
