Our Real Estate Team have considerable experience of acting on mainstream commercial and residential schemes. Our real estate lawyers have multi-sector expertise which we believe is rarely found in any other law firm. We have acted on acquisitions, disposals and lettings with a capital value of over half a billion pounds annually.

Our aim is to provide an efficient, friendly and jargon-free service. The key to achieving this aim is to understand each client’s goals whether corporate or individual, public sector or private. The real estate solicitors work closely with our clients and their other advisors, and through our clarity of communication and ready accessibility, we help to achieve the client’s goals and help them to understand every aspect of real estate law.

The Real Estate law specialists

We have expert real estate lawyers on hand to advise on commercial, residential mixed-use projects, landlord and tenant matters and corporate relocations combining an understanding of the development process coupled with the requirements and constraints of the private, healthcare and the not-for-profit sectors. We guide clients through the legislation and advise them on related areas, other than real estate law, such as affordable housing leases and long-term management agreements.

Much more than just Real Estate Lawyers

Recently we conducted a survey seeking the views of NHS estates managers and other property professionals, healthcare developers and surveyors, which suggested a high level of concern.  The results were published on The Guardian’s website (opens in a new window).

Who we work with:

  • Property Developers
  • Investors
  • Construction companies
  • Landlords,
  • Occupational and other tenants
  • Banks
  • Business occupiers
