What we do

Our team of 170 lawyers work across the real estate investment cycle from conception through to sales, to UK and overseas organisations whose property assets are at the heart of their business. We have one of the UK’s largest specialist practices and are ranked in The Lawyer’s Top Ten Real Estate lawyers.

We deliver our service through an integrated national team with centres of excellence in Bristol, Leeds, London, Manchester and Newcastle, blending local knowledge with national reach. 

Detailed elements of our services

We have the breadth and depth to have dedicated teams in residential, shopping centres and commercial investment. 

  • Our Shopping Centre team works in the UK’s most high profile schemes, delivering transactional and development advice and asset management , which we see as a service in itself.

  • Our Residential team works with all the country’s leading housebuilders, as well as smaller specialist developers. We are active in all the asset classes; private, build to rent, student accommodation and senior living for example.

  • Our Commercial Investment & Development team acts for institutional, international and private investors, working to ensure that the investment delivers maximum value.

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

  • Our Proptech team brings together our expertise in both real estate and technology, helping shape the development of relevant new applications.

We frequently apply our knowledge in mixed use developments in both the private and public sector.
