Our team offers comprehensive real estate expertise for owners and occupiers of business space as well as clients investing in, developing or financing real estate. We take time to understand our clients’ needs and offer them innovative and commercially focussed advice and support.

Our clients rely on us for advice on everything from buying, selling, financing, leasing and managing real estate through to the structuring and establishment of joint ventures and co-investment vehicles, including the launch of new property funds. By collaborating with our clients and ensuring that we have a deep understanding of the needs of their business we can play a pro-active role in delivering on their objectives.

We regularly advise on corporate headquarter deals, portfolio management and reorganisations and commercial leasing issues. We also work with many international companies and lawyers on the real estate aspects of inward investment and UK business start-ups. Our clients range from multinational businesses, global retail brands and institutions with heritage properties through to technology companies requiring bespoke buildings with specialist fit out requirements and start-up enterprises taking their first commercial space.

We work closely with our colleagues in Bristows' highly regarded corporate, tax and employment groups and are able to offer our clients an integrated multi-disciplinary service that meets the full range of their real estate needs.
