Fiona Gibson

Associate Solicitor

01206 217 014

Fiona, who was admitted as a solicitor in January 2000, joined the TSP Agriculture and Commercial Property team in June 2021. Based in the Colchester office, Fiona undertakes all types of Commercial Property work including sales and purchases (including auctions), commercial leases, rural property work, property litigation (including boundary disputes, rights of way, neighbour disputes) and landlord and tenant disputes (residential and commercial).  She assists Stephen Firmin and Kerry Addison in the Agriculture and Commercial Property team.

Fiona completed her degree in French with Contemporary European Institutions at the University of Edinburgh before going on to complete her LLM in European Law at the University of Aberdeen and then her LPC at the College of Law.

Fiona says “Since qualifying (and following a career break), I have changed direction in my career and bring a different perspective from a dispute resolution background to the commercial property team. I enjoy the range of work at TSP and my involvement in the larger projects we are instructed on.” Fiona is approachable and proactive in seeking to secure the aims of her clients and enjoys getting to know her clients to enable her to advise on the most appropriate solution to the issues they face or the transaction they require.

Fiona is bilingual in French, having studied and worked in France. Outside of work, she enjoys kayaking, chasing her dog across the Essex/Suffolk border and her new hobby of bee keeping.

Thompson Smith and Puxon has, for a number of years, been recommended by the Legal 500 in the Commercial Property practice area. In 2022/2023 the Legal 500 said: With an office in Colchester, practitioners at Thompson Smith and Puxon have seen a steady recent increase in workload, particularly in complex and high-value work acting for landowners in strategic land planning and development matters. A recent highlight for the team in this area includes advising on strategic land projects with end development values over £100m. Practice head Stephen Firmin is commended as ‘an excellent commercial lawyer‘, and Kerry Addison specialises in developments and rural property issues.
