TLT has strengthened its real estate and financial services offering with the appointment of partner Ranjeev Kumar to its Real Estate Group. 

Ranjeev joins from Watson Farley Williams, where he established and led the firm’s real estate finance offering in London. He brings a wealth of experience having advised on all types of domestic and cross-border real estate transactions, including sales, purchases, lettings, developments, financings, joint ventures, business mergers and acquisitions, and real estate funds formation.

At TLT, Ranjeev will focus on domestic and cross-border real estate finance transactions, working with developers, investors, banks and other financial institutions, overseas investors, and alternative lenders. His experience includes: acting for a London bank on its development financing of a mixed-use scheme in Kings Cross; advising a private investor on its acquisition of four student accommodation sites; and advising a property developer and its subsidiaries on a multi-million pound acquisition of a portfolio of four UK business parks.

Ranjeev’s appointment also enhances the firm’s international offering, having acted on behalf of many international banks, lenders and family offices, as well as establishing the SE Asia initiative at Katten Muchin Rosenman’s London office.

Andrew Lyon, partner and head of financial services sector at TLT, says:

“Ranjeev’s mix of real estate and financial services experience is clearly a great strategic fit for TLT and will enhance the firm’s offering across both these key sectors. His knowledge and experience will be a great asset to the team and we are excited to welcome him to the firm.”

Maria Connolly, partner and head of real estate and clean energy at TLT, says:

“Ranjeev’s experience adds further quality to our real estate team, strengthening our depth and expertise in this dynamic sector. Ranjeev brings a range of exciting clients to the firm, and his familiarity with a number of our existing clients will aid a seamless transition into our team.”

Ranjeev Kumar, partner at TLT, says:

"TLT offers brand and resource and in a progressive, dynamic and ambitious environment, which are the qualities which appeal to me. With the firm's renowned strength in depth and quality in breadth across all areas including real estate, financial services and renewables, I am delighted to be joining a very talented team."
