Real Estate and Construction We meet objectives, on time and in budget

Our Real Estate and construction team comprises some of the most senior advisors in the market. We work with developers, traders, corporate occupiers, investors and investment funds and lenders, and there are few scenarios that our team will not have encountered. Our combined experience exceeds 120 years. We offer a ‘hands-on’ approach, which means that our clients can get on with what they need to do, with comfort that their transaction is in safe hands.

We take a commercial approach. We take time at the outset to understand our clients’ objectives and timescales, and use our experience to meet them on time and within budget.

We like people! We take time to get to know our clients and work to their needs - not ours. We understand that clients need to feel confident and at ease and we work hard to earn the position of ‘trusted advisor’ – we don’t take it for granted.

We focus on:

  • Meeting objectives on time and within budget
  • Alleviating the stress of real estate transactions for our clients
  • Closing the deal
