Colin Gilbert

Colin Gilbert accepted an approach to join a PLC client’s Main Board at the age of 30 after specialising in M&A work and has since that time been outside private practice.

After leaving to set up a commercial venture with a colleague, which they sold five years later, the two started their current venture, Freshwater Coolers, 15 years ago.

Perhaps more a client than advisor these days, Colin continues to hold a Practising Certificate. He has been a Board Member of Leeds Law Society since 2012, took over the office of Secretary in 2014, and on 1st June 2015 was  appointed President.
