About Gavin

Gavin is a senior associate in the Corporate and Commercial Department in Leman Solicitors. Polished and sartorial Gavin immediately and comfortably instils confidence in clients and colleagues alike.

Hailing from Galway it’s not surprising that Gavin is as often on water as he is on land. A keen surfer and windsurfer, come Friday evening, Gavin is likely to be seen speeding (at max 120Kph) along the M4.

When not on the water you’ll most likely find Gavin training or playing with Clontarf Rugby Club’s J5 team in the Leinster Metro League. Gavin is also a long-suffering Connacht Rugby supporter but is only too delighted to wear as much Connacht Rugby clothing around Dublin on a daily basis.
