Originally from Strabane, Northern Ireland, Gayle left Ulster to study law at the University of Liverpool. On graduation, she was drawn to the bright lights of London. There she attended law school and undertook her compulsory legal training. When she realised that she was spending more on weekend flights to Cornwall annually than on her Oyster card, she made the move to Cornwall permanently in 2004 and joined Nalders Solicitors that year.
In 2006, she upped sticks and took off again for a year's trip around the world but has managed to keep her feet firmly on Cornish soil since her return in 2007. After many years as a litigator, Gayle switched to commercial law where she is superbly placed to advise business clients on how to avoid the pitfalls that she so regularly encountered in her litigation practice.
Gayle’s passion is helping start-up businesses get on their feet. Not only can she advise them on the legal aspects of entrepreneurship, she gets enormous satisfaction in introducing those striking out on their own to contacts who can help them on their journey, such as accountants, estate agents and mentors.
In focusing on providing expert legal advice to start-ups and SMEs, Gayle believes she is giving something back to the Cornish community, helping to create jobs and opportunities for the next generation.
Conferences and training
Alongside Dale Band, Nalders Solicitor’s managing partner, Gayle has put on employment seminars for local businesses and members of the Nalders Employment Protection Scheme. In May 2018, Gayle presented a seminar on GDPR for clients and contacts alongside Lee Middleton and Melanie Rowe.
Outside the office
Away from work, Gayle is a keen sea and shore fisher-person and enjoys the craic generally.
Thanks Gayle, your work is excellent, if a little daunting but it’s going to be reassuring knowing you've put all this in place.
