Gwen specialises in debt finance and refinance including acquisition finance, asset based lending, corporate and commercial banking, property finance, trade finance and syndications.

She is recognised as a leader in her field by Chambers and Partners Guide to The Legal Profession and advises on transactional matters and the updating of standard forms.

In Legal 500 UK 2022, clients have described the banking and finance group at DMH Stallard in the following terms:  "The practice has a strong ethos that delivers a personable, quality service with a great depth of knowledge of various aspects of the law through their staff. I have not met one person working for DMH who falls below this standard. They are focused on risk but have a commercial view point and are extremely good at working with other professional service providers."

Gwen is the general editor and author of the English chapters of ‘Bank Confidentiality’ (Bloomsbury Professional 2015) and of ‘International Acquisition Finance: Law and Practice’ (Oxford University Press 2010).

The level of service we receive from Gwen is first class. Her experience and wisdom in navigating through some challenging cases has been greatly appreciated.

Chambers and Partners UK 2020

Gwen Godfrey is the stand out partner at DMH. Always available as a friendly expert, to lend an ear and offer sound advice. Happy to chat through hypothetical circumstances and practicalities, even on transactions that we haven’t yet engaged on. Very proactive in identifying areas that may cause issues and flagging early.
