Real estate planning and construction

Real estate investment

Real estate investment

We provide a first class service on all aspects of investment transactions - acquisition, leasing, management and disposal of real estate investment assets.

Our specialist team advises on the sale and purchase of all kinds of property - commercial and residential and in all market sectors including office, industrial, retail and leisure.

Our clients, who may be UK-based or offshore, include listed companies, private companies, individuals, LLPs, trusts, funds and general partnerships.

We can advise on the most appropriate vehicle for the acquisition and the best way of structuring and financing the transaction. We offer a multi-disciplinary service and increasingly our transactions involve our corporate and commercial teams when creating the purchase vehicle, setting up joint ventures, partnerships and real estate funds.

Our real estate investment practice is increasingly international in scope. We have, for example, acted on over £175m of inward property deals over the last year for overseas private investors and on over £150m of other investment transactions

Our team

We are a large team with the capability to act on complex, high-value and time critical deals.

Charging information

We offer fixed priced options for clients depending on their budget and the size, type and complexity of the work involved.

We would be pleased to discuss your requirements free of charge and tailor a costs proposal accordingly.

Alternatively, our charges will sometimes be based on our hourly rates plus administrative charges and disbursements in which case we will provide you with an initial estimate of your likely legal costs and will update this as your requirements or the circumstances of the work change.
