Real Estate

Building on your ambitions

Residential, commercial or industrial. Buildings, land or both. Our experienced real estate practice covers all the bases from transactions, leases, developments, zoning and construction laws, and financing through to sale and lease backs, regulatory, environmental, labelling and other matters. We’ll give you the confidence to make the most of opportunities, while managing risk.

Real estate developments also form a large part of our portfolio alongside the architect and contractor agreements that make sure projects go to plan on time and on budget. Our proven real estate specialists are as comfortable providing advice and support to private clients as they are to commercial users, institutional investors and finance parties. And as well as being experts in real estate investment funds, rating agencies and the public sector, they're also fluent in the growing field of ESG-related law.
