Siobhan Godley qualified as a Chartered Accountant and Chartered Tax Advisor at Andersens where she started her career focussing on advising the financial services industry and then latterly real estate funds and investors. She joined Deloitte in 2003 and continued her specialism in real estate transactions.

Landmark transactions she has advised on include the HSBC Tower (acquisition/sell side 2009/2015), the Bevis Marks building, Aldermanbury Square, 22 Bishopsgate and the new Goldman Sachs London HQ transacted in 2019.

In her personal life she is married to Simon and has two teenage children and two well-pampered dogs. Over her career, she has advocated flexible/agile working to combine a transaction orientated advisory career with motherhood through, where important to her, periods of part-time work and flexible working. Siobhan is passionate about the arts/literature (her BA major was English Literature), food, drink and all things Alpine (including an avid determined skier!).
