What we do

With over 135 lawyers we have one of the UK's largest dedicated Real Estate practices and are ranked in "The Lawyers" Top Ten Real Estate lawyers.

We deliver our services through an integrated national team, with centres of excellence in London, Bristol, Glasgow, Leeds, Manchester and Newcastle, blending local knowledge with national reach. This provides clients with access to the entire infrastructure and resources of the firm. Working in partnership with our clients is very important to us, and the majority of our relationships are long-standing.

The integration of experts in planning, environment, construction, corporate finance, tax and litigation into the core transactional team is a particular point of difference that brings efficiency in communication and execution.
