Real estate

We are one of the UK's largest real estate groups, with over 100 property lawyers advising on thousands of transactions across England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland each year. Clients instruct us for this experience, our depth of expertise and sector know-how.

Many of our real estate partners are independently recognised as leading individuals in the field by the legal industry's annual directory rankings. Clients including many in-house lawyers trust us with both 'high profile' and business as usual work.

We act across the industry for corporate occupiers, developers, banks, investors and public bodies. Clients benefit from our long-standing relationships with many national and regional property agents and other advisers.

We have a strong reputation advising some of the major brands in the leisure, retail, financial services and media sectors. We're active in the energy and renewables market, for example, advising on over 30% of all UK solar renewables projects and working on some of the UK's major energy infrastructure projects. We also advise public sector organisations and a large number of social housing providers.   

The group offers a cradle-to-grave service across a wide range of legal expertise embracing property development, investment, asset management, dispute resolution, construction, planning, environmental, tax and more. We're involved in multi-million pound developments through to right-to-buy sales for local authorities and everything in between.

We're known for the quality of our expertise and the efficient and consistent way it is delivered. We build confidence with our clients through agreed service levels, open and clear communications and regular reporting of our performance. We recognise the constant need to offer value for money and to add value. 

Clients can also benefit from a range of added value services. We develop extranets that help clients to gain immediate access to their documents and information. We provide bespoke training programmes for clients and frequent online updates on technical issues.
