Welcoming Suzanne Gadsby to the internal AFS team!
Previously Head of Legal for one of the largest privately-owned hotel groups in the country. With over a decade of experience working in an in house environment including responsibility for employment tribunals, real estate transactions in the many millions comprising over half the group estate, wide experience of contracts, disputes and litigation. Originally qualifying and then practising before moving in a house in a variety of private practice firms and practice areas throughout the North West. Suzanne brings considerable experience in the legal sector to set up a new full service in house legal support function within the Group.
Suzanne Gadsby commented that “AFS impressed me as a happy, innovative and progressive company built from humble beginnings and growing rapidly. The Directors were clearly talented in their field of FCA regulated business in a highly competitive market and advanced in their company structure.
With an already significant compliance function in place, they were seeking to further secure a fully rounded in house legal function to support their directorships, their growing business and both the compliance and operational functions as a whole. After significant experience as a sole legal counsel previously and Head of Legal for one of the largest hotel groups in the UK my broad range of legal experience in an in house setting was an ideal fit to support AFS in a new in house legal function and to help them to realise all their expansion and business plans in both the short and long term. A huge challenge and responsibility and a fitting follow on from my many happy years within the hospitality sector“
In her spare time, Suzanne likes walking her very energetic beagle and looking after her many other pets, gardening and cooking.
We look forward to working alongside Suzanne and welcoming her into the team!
