I have been a partner practising in Lewis Silkin’s commercial property team for more than 25 years.
I advise on a broad range of commercial real estate transactions and issues, extending from substantial investments and high value asset funding to the property portfolio requirements of enduring high street brands. I am privileged to head Lewis Silkin’s talented real estate practice group.
Although I advise across the breadth of the commercial property landscape the following feature prominently in my practice:
- investors: I advise both onshore and offshore investors on the acquisition (including tax-efficient structuring), funding, management and disposal of their real estate assets (particularly those of high value)
- occupiers: I advise major high street brands on their occupational requirements (including acquisitions and portfolio management)
- property finance: I have extensive experience of advising on high value property acquisition, financing and refinancing
Retail, Hospitality & Leisure
I am a senior member of the Lewis Silkin’s Retail, Hospitality and Leisure Sector Focus Group. During the last two decades I have advised leading retail and restaurant brands on their property acquisition, management and rationalization requirements.
