Asset Management

We see asset management as a specialism, believing this to be the best way to support complex real estate investments and meet increasingly demanding schedules. Our aim is to deliver the best results, balancing commercial considerations, good tenant relationships and speed of execution. We draw on a long track-record for excellence to deliver a customised quality-assured, risk-aware, proactive service.


With clients including REIFF's fund managers, developers and local authorities, we stand out as a market leading authority.

Our work includes seeding assets, buying and selling assets into and out of funds, re-development advice, financing, granting leases and consents, lettings, lease variations and re-gears, as well as working with our property litigation colleagues to provide advice on vacant possession strategies, termination of tenancies, insolvency, dilapidations, forfeiture, debt recovery, breach of covenant and 1954 Lease Renewals.

Our commitment to collaboration is key to our collective success. Your team will include asset and tenant champions, whose job it is to know everything about the asset and particular characteristics, as well as specific occupiers. Our long involvement with many developers means that we frequently bring strong asset memory.

Importantly, as part of one of the largest real estate teams in the country, we are able to work simultaneously on specialist projects and day-to-day work, the latter in particular supported by specialist colleagues in our portfolio management team for large volume matters.
