Our expertise across property law
We have sector-leading technical expertise in every field of commercial real estate. We advise clients on all aspects of their operation from funding to dispute resolution, to construction. We offer full support to developers, construction companies and property finance providers including banks.

Our residential property specialists are recognised as some of the best in the business, advising UK and overseas occupiers, developers and private banks on sales, purchases and financing.
