Experienced and committed team in real estate
Our highly experienced, versatile and committed team advise a broad range of clients across the complete spectrum of their real estate needs. Our clients include institutional and private investors, both domestic and off-shore, funders, corporate occupiers, developers, retailers, hotel owners, manufacturers, embassies, charities and education and arts institutions.
Whatever your sector we aim to get to know you and your business to understand its objectives, enabling us to take a strategic approach to your present and future real estate needs and play an integral part of your decision-making process.
Our team provides services relating to the acquisition, disposal and financing of all types of commercial real estate asset. The practice advises both corporate occupiers and landlords on the maximisation of the value of those assets, which could be through lease re-gearing to release “hidden value” or to facilitate future exit or expansion strategies to meet changing business needs. But we have not lost sight of the need for robust advice on the issues that arise on a day to day basis, and our specialist landlord and tenant lawyers have a wealth of experience in this area and can call on the services of our contentious property practice as necessary.

Planning and Environmental
Our real estate can team provide strategic and technical advice on a wide range of town and country planning matters, whether in a development context or otherwise, and guide you through the dynamic environmental regulatory regime from a transactional or an occupational perspective.
