Law firm Keebles has appointed solicitor Gabrielle Allen as a new member of its expanding residential property team.

Having previously worked in a litigation team for six years Gabrielle joins after qualifying as a solicitor at a firm in Manchester.

On her choice to transition to residential property Gabrielle said: “I have always had an interest in property and during my training contract I was able to complete one of my seats in the residential department, which confirmed that property was the career path I wanted to follow.

“I enjoy being involved in the process of helping clients to buy and sell property; as it can be a difficult and, at times, emotional journey for some people.”

Gabrielle said that working in Sheffield was important: “I knew I wanted to be based in the city. Joining Keebles is an exciting step for me, especially the opportunity to become a part of the residential property team with such a great reputation in the market.

“The team spirit is a very important part of the department and it is an ideal opportunity for me to become a key member and to help to the grow the department further.”

Senior Associate Bonita Wolfenden said: “I am delighted to welcome Gabrielle to Keebles, as she is an excellent addition to our expanding and busy residential department.

“Over the past three years our reputation in the South Yorkshire market has continued to develop and we have seen continued and strong growth in our department – with Gabrielle supporting us we hope to continue to expand even further.”
