Real estate is about making property work for you, whether it is your core business, or ancillary to it.
That may mean securing the right sites for a retail or leisure brand roll-out, expanding or refitting office space at just the right time to increase business capacity, getting the right structure in place for a mixed use public/private development, or building an investment portfolio. All of these require commercially oriented and pragmatic legal expertise delivered in a straightforward, accessible way.
Our real estate group combines real depth of knowledge with breadth of scope and capability. We have a particular focus on corporate occupiers, development and regeneration, investment, and property finance, with our work ranging from transactional support to providing specialist advice covering planning, construction, dispute resolution and tax.We advise lenders and investors; private developers, major corporates and public bodies; as well as both landlords and tenants, giving us a wide-ranging perspective. Regardless of their business type or sector, our clients come back to us time and again, demonstrating the trust they place in us to help them to address their property-related challenges.
