The speed of technological change is continuing apace in the real estate sector. We combine technology and property expertise to help you seize opportunities and mitigate risks arising in this rapidly changing environment.


The ongoing shift towards "smart buildings" and "smart cities" is providing a wealth of opportunities for entrepreneurs, technology companies, and real estate developers alike. In addition, PropTech is being used as a force for good, helping to make the places we live and work healthier, more eco-friendly and more sustainable.

We pride ourselves on our PropTech offering, at the heart of which is an integrated national team of specialists, with expertise in technology, real estate and corporate law. We routinely advise a variety of major real estate businesses, while at the same time supporting numerous disruptive technology businesses who are leveraging their solutions to revolutionize our built environments.

Success in this space hinges on being able to understand and address a new set of commercial and legal challenges; our wide-ranging experience means we are extremely well-placed to help you navigate these challenges, and to ultimately succeed.
