Duncan Fisher's Expertise

 

Duncan Fisher

Duncan is a partner in the Real Estate Group at DAC Beachcroft. He has more than 24 years' commercial real estate experience acting for major clients operating across the UK in both the public and the private sector, with particular emphasis on the residential sector.

During his career, he has advised on a number of high profile and multi-million value transactions involving freehold and leasehold acquisitions, developments and disposals for FTSE 100 companies, financial institutions, landowners, private investors and public bodies.

Duncan is referred by the independent legal guide, Legal 500, 2018 Edition as a `housebuilding expert` and he advises national housebuilders such as Bellway, Persimmon and Taylor Wimpey working closely with PLC and divisional business units.

He specialises in residential development working closely with his clients advising on all aspects of short term and strategic land (including mixed use) schemes involving: complex site assembly, collaboration and joint venture arrangements, conditional contracts, development and forward sale agreements, estate set-up, management and disposals, clawback/overage contracts, options, pre-emptions and infrastructure documentation.

In addition, Duncan has significant experience leading volume plot sales teams for housebuilders, acting on regeneration and gap funded projects and advising on large scale bulk acquisitions and disposals of UK residential property.

Duncan became a partner at DAC Beachcroft in 2018 after 20 years at Womble Bond Dickinson, 15 years as a partner advising in the field of commercial real estate. He led the residential development team and has extensive experience of advising landowners, developers and the UK's leading housebuilders, as well as regional and emerging residential companies.

He qualified as a solicitor of the senior courts of England and Wales in 1993 and holds a degree in Law (LLB (Honours) 1990).
