Law firm Russell-Cooke has welcomed real estate finance specialist Mark Toland to its multi-disciplinary real estate team. Mark joins as a senior associate and brings 10 years of experience.
Mark has worked extensively with a range of clients, including bridging and high street lenders, advising on the security of their lending across all types of commercial property and residential developments. He advises both lenders and borrowers on all aspects of real estate finance including bridging finance, term loans and secured lending in relation to commercial and residential acquisitions.
At Russell-Cooke, Mark will work within the cross-practice real estate planning and construction team, which includes specialists in planning, real estate investment, corporate transactions, development and construction.
Head of real estate Matt Garrod said: “Mark comes as a very welcome addition to our real estate offering. He will work with the investment team to build the firm’s real estate finance capabilities, supporting and enhancing our offering to our existing client base and attracting new clients. This is an exciting addition to our service capability and we will look to further grow this capability in the coming months with Mark’s expertise and experience providing a strong foundation.”
Mark Toland comments: “I welcome with open arms this opportunity to work in Russell-Cooke’s top-ranked real estate team and to build the real estate finance practice. Inflation, current economic uncertainties and constant changes in the market will no doubt be a concern to those across the entire real estate industry. Those financing through property need assured and commercial assistance, especially on those transactions short on time or requiring a quick turnaround, and I look forward to assisting our clients and the Russell-Cooke team in any way I can. I am excited to explore the opportunities ahead and am grateful for the very warm welcome from my new colleagues.”
