Gwen is a lawyer in the New Build team of the Conveyancing department. A Fellow member of the Institute of the Chartered Legal Executive, Gwen has been working in conveyancing for more than 10 years. Although experienced in both residential and commercial properties, since joining Thackray Williams, she has focused on residential properties, specialising in new build property.
Approachable and with a friendly, positive attitude, Gwen provides practical solutions to meet the client’s needs and is always on hand to offer assurance and support. Making it a policy to answer client’s calls herself, means Gwen’s clients feel valued and know she will commit to sorting out their problems. Extremely vigilant, she exercises attention to detail at all times.
Clients expect a first class service at a competitive price and Gwen believes it is their right. When a developer sets tight deadlines, she will do all she can to meet them and allay all doubts the client may have. Gwen’s clients find her service impressive and efficient and they often refer her to their family and friends. Gwen also has extensive experience dealing with the high net worth clients.
Being able to speak Mandarin and Cantonese is a bonus, particularly amongst Chinese clients who do not speak much English. Gwen can also assist colleagues by translating Chinese documents and helping to identify and analyse the evidence provided by Chinese clients. Being familiar with the oriental culture can often make a real difference to the overall service offered to clients from this part of the world. She has previous experience of participating in the Far East Property Exhibition and giving legal advice to the overseas investors.
Gwen finds property law interesting and challenging and feels a sense of satisfaction and achievement once a transaction is complete. She enjoys working as part of a team at Thackray Williams, particularly for the support and help they provide.
Away from work, Gwen spends time with her local Chinese Community. She enjoys travelling, playing badminton and cooking Chinese meals.
