Real estate sector
Our real estate lawyers will keep you one step ahead – helping you find and facilitate the very best property investments.
We understand the complex landscape of property investment and development. Our team are immersed in the industry: we monitor trends and fully appreciate changing commercial and practical issues. Furthermore, unlike other firms, we have as much experience in residential developments as we do in the commercial sector.
Our dedicated team acts for institutional and private investors, commercial and residential developers, lenders, senior debt providers and businesses with a substantial estate.
We deliver high-level expertise at every stage, from funding and strategic planning through to acquisition, construction, management and disposal. We do this by bringing together lawyers from across the firm – experts in tax, planning and finance – to overcome challenges and drive the project forward. We also have one of the largest property dispute teams in the UK, which enables us to minimise any disruptions that may arise from time to time.
Our real estate lawyers have spent years building relationships within the sector. We know key players and plug clients into a wide network of contacts.
Our service is proactive, pragmatic and personal. We appreciate that no two investments or developments are the same. We spend a lot of time getting to know you and we adapt our approach to suit your needs.
While we are flexible, all clients benefit from the same clear, creative commercial advice that achieves objectives with minimum fuss, for a sensible price.
