“Clear, commercial advice, provided within tight deadlines.”
Chambers UK, 2015

Our London real estate team has extensive experience of advising on real estate investments across the UK and cross-border, working seamlessly with our colleagues throughout Europe, the United States, Canada, Latin America, Asia, Australia, the Middle East and Central Asia. We have advised on a number of high-profile real estate disposals and acquisitions, acting for corporates, financial institutions and real estate investment funds.

We advise not only on the initial investment but also on the full management of each project. We make online dealrooms available to enable our clients and their wider teams to gain access to property information and communicate with us and each other more efficiently.

The acquisition of investment property by non-resident clients needs careful attention to the ownership structure; in conjunction with our tax team, we are accustomed to advising clients on the most beneficial arrangements appropriate to their country of residence.

Our areas of work include

  • negotiating the acquisition, including agreeing the transaction structure and documentation; due diligence on the title and occupancy details; financing arrangements and tax implications; reporting on commercial arrangements
  • divestment strategies and implementation
  • financing
  • ownership and co-investment structuring.
