Gateley Legal bolsters East Midlands construction team with four appointments

Gateley Legal has bolstered its Nottingham-based construction team to a total of nine legal professionals servicing the East Midlands region following four new appointments.

Della Copley joins Gateley Legal as a senior associate. Prior to this, Copley spent five years at Geldards LLP and brings a strong construction background to the team, specialising in contentious matters including dispute resolution methods such as litigation, adjudication and arbitration.

Catherine Everington completed her training at Gateley Legal and spent a year with the construction team post-qualification before joining Shakespeare Martineau for eighteen months. Everington re-joins the Nottingham team as a solicitor and will work closely alongside legal director, Charles Jakeman, to support clients with the Government’s developer remediation contract, as well as core development matters.

Copley and Everington will both add significant specialist resource to strengthen Gateley Legal’s service offering which sees the team advising housebuilder and developer clients on a wide range of fire and building safety matters.

Miriam Forman and Davis Barwell join as trainee solicitors and will support the team with contentious matters for housebuilder, developer, contractor and subcontractor clients, as well as managing construction documentation for major projects.

Piet van Gelder, partner and head of the Nottingham construction team at Gateley Legal, said: “Our Nottingham construction team has grown to be one of the largest specialist teams in the East Midlands region through our work for major housebuilders and developers, as well as other construction stakeholders.

“The team has not only identified but is also leading on the implementation and scope of the Building Safety Act and so we have brought in Della and Catherine to strengthen the team and support clients with overcoming all the issues arising out of that piece of legislation. It’s also great to have new talent like Miriam and Davis on board to really boost the team.”

The four new appointments join partner – Piet van Gelder, legal director – Charles Jakeman, solicitors – Jaclyn Nelson and Ryan Ball and paralegal – Beth Eady to total nine construction team members in Nottingham.
