Property is a vibrant business sector that touches on almost everyone, whether it be through the homes we live in, the buildings we work at or the venues where we relax and enjoy ourselves. Property is of huge importance for any country and the property market has always been a barometer for gauging the state of an economy. As well as being of great importance and having a large impact on most people, the sector is also facing some huge issues. The recent economic difficulties have created a lack of financing and a reluctance for lenders to take on risk, investors are having to re-think their strategies due to falling prices and litigation, due to contract default or business failure, is on the increase.
In order to be able to advise on the issues affecting the sector, we have developed a multi-disciplinary group to advise on all stages of the property asset life cycle, including the buying and selling, planning and development, and management and investment of property.
Our fully integrated group provides comprehensive property related advice to our clients in the sector, drawing upon the resources of the Banking, Construction, Environment, Planning and Property Litigation teams. Our property sector clients include a wide range of UK and international organisations, public and private companies, pension funds, developers, retailers, hotel operators, banks and other financial institutions. The changing economic environment has also seen the rise of a new wave of property investor, attracted by a favourable exchange rate and a stable legal regime, international investors looking to invest in the UK have brought a new dynamic to the sector. As well as offering advice to all aspects of the property market, we also advise organisations whose business is not necessarily property related, but who utilise property assets extensively in the delivery of their products or services.
