Having played a major role in developing the firm’s global education capabilities she is also an established local lawyer advising the universities in the West Midlands on a wide range of complex and innovative projects. 

Commenting on her appointment, Gayle said: “I’m excited about leading our Birmingham office, supporting our local West Midlands and multinational clients and enabling all of our people to play an important role in advancing our strategy as a professional services business with law at its core.

“The West Midlands has seen significant growth in recent years with businesses across our real estate, energy, infrastructure, technology, science and industry and financial services sectors developing rapidly. I look forward to supporting our people on the opportunities this presents for Pinsent Masons."

Gayle, who takes up her post as of 1st March, succeeds Greg Lowson who is retiring following a 32-year career at Pinsent Masons. Having joined Pinsent & Co as its first lateral partner hire in 1991, he held the Birmingham Head of Office role for 21 years.

As an established and respected lawyer both in her field of expertise and across the local business community, I’m confident that under Gayle’s leadership our Birmingham office will continue to thrive and support the broad range of clients operating across the region.”
