Gemma Ball

Solicitor - Commercial property

How can I help you? 

I joined Tees in 2022 having qualified as a solicitor in 2017. Since qualification I have practised exclusively in commercial property in Essex, London and the surrounding areas. I advise on all aspects of commercial property work, including:

  • Freehold and leasehold acquisitions and disposals of commercial property
  • All aspects of landlord and tenant work, including new leases, renewals, surrenders, extensions, sub-leases and assignment
  • Secured lending and refinancing acting for banks, private lenders and borrowers, with experience in development loans and bridging finance
  • Land development including conditional contracts, option agreements, exclusivity agreements, overage agreements, Section 104 and Section 106 Agreements

Delivering what you really need

I always take the time to understand my client’s objectives in any transaction. This enables to me to provide well thought out, tailored and practical advice. I am approachable, friendly and able to explain often complex matters in a way that is clear and understandable.

I am particularly experienced in property development transactions, from the acquisition of development sites, negotiating option agreement and conditional contracts, to arranging development finance. I have advised clients embarking on their first development project to experienced commercial property development companies.

What else should you know?

I worked for a large international law firm in London alongside studying law. From there I went on to complete my LPC at BBP Law school in Holborn, achieving a Distinction. During my training I focused predominantly on property law, including commercial and residential property as well as contentious property matters.

My passion for property is also evident in my personal life, having carried out two large property development projects in the past five years.

Outside of work I enjoy long walks by the coast, where I live with my two children and dogs, as well as socialising with friends. I am a member of the Parent Teacher Association at the local school and enjoy fundraising for the many ongoing school projects.
