Garry Abrams has joined the Liverpool-based solicitors as a consultant, with a specialism in property auctions.
Abrams previously worked at EAD Solicitors for 34 years before joining GAD. Over the past 15 years he advised landlords on both a regional and national level to establish and build property portfolios.
He will be based between GAD's Mathew Street and Penny Lane offices in Liverpool.
A key auction house client for Abrams is Sutton Kersh. Part of Abrams' role includes staffing a free legal advice desk at the auctions held by Sutton Kersh in Liverpool.
Abrams said: "I work with many builders and developers in this regard along with estate agents, insurance brokers, property professionals and private individual clients. This opportunity for me with GAD is an exciting one and another chapter in a fulfilling career.
"On auction day, I am always happy to run through a contract with a prospective purchaser and point out any pertinent clauses and possible pitfalls. Many prospective buyers are surprised to learn that once the auction hammer falls and they are the highest bidder, they have entered into a contract to purchase on the basis of the auction terms and conditions that they cannot withdraw from."
