Property

It’s perhaps more true today than ever, as Mark Twain once advised – buy land, they aren’t making any more of it.

With the UK ranked as one of the largest property markets for high net worth individuals in the world, there are sound economic reasons for you to invest here. Our real estate team has a great deal of experience in all aspects of property investment in the UK, and can advise on complex property investment transactions, particularly in prime locations in London.

We have particular experience advising foreign investors, helping them to understand how things work in the UK. We can help you to understand your property options and how best to structure and secure financing for high-profile property deals.

We can introduce you to joint venture and other opportunities and explore the range of finance options available. We have the expertise to deal with any planning and development issues that may arise and after purchase we can look after the legal side of day to day property management matters, offering a seamless joined-up service throughout the life of your investments.
