Award winning law firm, Gardner Leader, has appointed Michael Beadsworth as a Senior Associate in its Real Estate Team, working out of the firm’s Maidenhead office. 

Michael brings with him a wealth of experience and knowledge, strengthening the firm’s highly skilled real estate team which recently expanded with the merger with Clark Holt, a firm widely recognised as leaders in this field. 

This latest appointment is part of Gardner Leader’s plan to build for the future. The firm’s partner and head of commercial team, Greg Humphreys, said: “Michael is part of our long-term plan to continue to build a specialist real estate team that supports the current demand for commercial property service, demand which is expected to grow in Maidenhead and beyond. It’s important that we continue to be recognised for the personal, high standard of service our clients currently enjoy.”  

As well as holding an MBA, Michael’s 30-year career spans across a range of real estate services including land purchases and site set ups, property leases and portfolio management, and acquisition and disposal of property like hotels and public houses.  

Prior to joining the firm, Michael also worked in-house for a major UK charity and has acted across a range of complex matters including land sales for development worth over £30 million and on substantial property holdings.  

Derek Rodgers, Managing Partner at Gardner Leader said: “We are delighted to welcome Michael to our growing team in Maidenhead. His broad experience, skill and knowledge is exemplary, and will add yet further expertise to the team and support in guiding our clients through all aspects of their real estate needs.” 

Greg added: “We are very pleased to have Michael joining us as he has a wealth of experience in exactly the kind of work that we are looking to build across the real estate team and specifically in our Maidenhead office. Michael will have the opportunity to work closely with all our team and get to know our clients and contacts across the firm.”
