Chris Gardner is a trainee solicitor homing his expertise in Commercial matters at Tilly Bailey & Irvine's Wynyard office.
Emerging from Northumbria University with MLaw qualifications, Chris enjoyed a stint as a paralegal in Commercial Property matters before moving to Commercial Litigation towards the back end of 2018.
Chris holds experience in a wide range of landlord and tenant matters, as well as purchases and sales to give any client confidence in their legal matter.
He also played a vital part in developments involving Age UK and their charity matters in Teesside. This included the first registration of their previous office in Middlesbrough, the subsequent sale/lease of new premises in Middlesbrough and the ongoing assistance in relation to a new Hartlepool premises.
Chris admits that studying law was the one thing that properly stimulated him during his education, pushing himself in everything he does.
An avid sports fan and Sunderland supporter, Chris utilises his diligence and ability to explain things clearly and succinctly. He also wanted to be a Butcher as a kid, but we're glad he took a different route!
