Investment specialist to join as partner from GVA


Gerald Eve has continued the expansion and strengthening of its London Offices team with the recruitment of Justin James as partner.

Justin has more than 25 years’ experience of London investment, and joins from GVA where he has been head of West End investment since 2013. Previous clients include Derwent London, Aviva Investors and central Government (Defence Infrastructure Organisation), with key deals advised on including the sale of the Old War Office on Whitehall, and the acquisition of 6 St James’s Square for Pontegadea.

The arrival of Justin is the latest sign of Gerald Eve’s ongoing investment in its transactional teams, notably its London offices (both agency and investment) and national capital markets capabilities.

Lloyd Davies, partner at Gerald Eve, said: “With longstanding and wide-ranging experience of the West End investment market, Justin is the ideal person to complement our existing capabilities in London and broaden the team’s expertise. His arrival will further improve the quality of advice we can offer our clients in the capital, and he joins at an exciting time for the firm as it invests in its transactional teams.”

Justin can be contacted via email ([email protected]) or at Gerald Eve’s London West End office.
