Property experts join the team

Two property specialists have been appointed by an award-winning law firm in Telford.

Nick Gee and Asif Ahmed are the latest additions to the Martin-Kaye Solicitors team and will be based at the company’s head office in Euston Way.

Nick is a commercial property solicitor with over three decades of experience in the industry, and has handled all kinds of commercial property transactions for institutions, retailers, developers, investors, public companies, private companies and individuals.

He was a senior partner for many years in large law practices in Manchester, Birmingham, and Stoke-on-Trent, and his most recent transactions have included: the establishment of a wind farm; the acquisition of a heliport; and advice on the provision of search and rescue helicopter services at a private airport.

Nick said: “I joined Martin-Kaye because of the firm’s ambition to become one of the leading commercial property legal providers in the region, and I believe my skills and experience will help the firm to achieve that aim.”

As well as his UK property experience, Nick also has experience of the Middle East property market having been based in Dubai for three years as a consultant for an international legal firm.

In comparison, Asif is new to the industry and is keen to develop his knowledge and skills as part of Martin-Kaye’s hugely successful residential property team, after qualifying at a high street law firm in Birmingham.

“During my training contract, I found conveyancing a very interesting area of the law – but working at a high street law firm meant my experience was limited to straight-forward freehold property transactions, and I wanted to move to a larger firm like Martin-Kaye to broaden my knowledge and to experience other aspects of property law,” he said.

Senior Partner Graham Davies said: “Nick brings with him a wealth of experience that we’re sure will be invaluable, and Asif is just starting out in his career, so it will be exciting to watch as he develops his skills.”
