There’s a reason Universal Music chose Amee and GSC Partner Harvey Posener to handle the pre-let of its London HQ in 2015. It was the same reason Bravado entrusted its flagship Rolling Stones store in Carnaby Street to them in 2020, and why, most recently, Abbey Road Institute asked them to manage the legal work for the lease of its new home at the Angel Recording Studios in Islington.

“The level of advice we give and our technical ability really is exceptional,” explains Amee. “We’ll often hear the legal team for the other party say ‘we’ve never seen drafting like this’. That’s because we think deeply. We are not just transactional lawyers following a process. We add value for our clients. We give commercial advice that saves money by identifying risk and reducing it.”

Amee’s philosophy is a simple one: “You achieve better results by building better relationships,” she says. “We work with, not against our counterparts to achieve our clients’ goals. We aim for perfection, but getting the deal done is always the number one priority. Our clients trust us to make that happen.”

She enjoys getting under the skin of her cases, but it’s the end result that drives her. “I love working with clients to help them realise their goals or dreams. Seeing bullet points on a piece of paper turn into something magnificent and tangible is enormously rewarding.”

Qualifications & Experience

Amee read Law at the University of Leicester (2003 LLB Hons) and joined GSC in 2004 as a trainee. She qualified as a solicitor in 2006 and was appointed a partner in 2013.

‘A small firm which punches well above its weight’ GSC Solicitors LLP undertook leasing transactions for several blue-chip corporate tenants, particularly in the media sector. It acted for a number of hotel owners regarding the acquisition and development of new hotels.

“We have found the service excellent, and it is for this reason we have continued to use GSC. The key strengths for us have been a commercial approach to deals that is often missing from solicitors, and a personal service based on a knowledge of us and our needs and long-term plans.”

“The main positive comparison we have noted from GSC is the personal touch and commercial acumen.”

“We have often used different legal firms for IP and other work in the past, but GSC’s commercial approach and professionalism, coupled with the excellent working relationship we have built up over a number of years makes it our preferred choice.”

“As a Financial Advisor I have been personally using and recommending GSC for over thirty years. I have referred clients of mine to them and only ever been thanked for the recommendation, which should convey the confidence I have in the individuals, and the firm.”

“Great result today. Just wanted to say thank you for your continued hard work in fighting our corner on this case. You have both been amazing. Michael incredible support and good ideas.”
