Real Estate

Back to contents.


Our Real Estate Group is on the front lines of an ever-changing global industry. Our lawyers advise on high-value acquisitions and dispositions, ranging from London skyscrapers to critical data centres. As a trainee within the Real Estate Group, opportunities exist within the full range or commercial real estate including leasing, acquisitions, dispositions, land use, and finance. You will work on matters worth hundreds of millions of pounds in London, one of the world’s largest and complex real estate markets. Some of our largest clients include Reuben Brothers and London and Regional Properties. What would appeal to a graduate joining your group? I’m really lucky; I joined a group with a lot of experienced and knowledgeable partners who really have invested a lot of time in my career over the years, which I try to emulate now. Real estate is a really great seat for having a lot of day-to-day responsibility and client contact. It’s a seat that allows you to to begin to cut your teeth and have a real involvement in negotiation meetings.

What excites you about law today? I think now more than ever, the people coming into the firm at graduate level have so much to offer because of their experience with technology. The graduates coming through are all digital natives and therefore have a completely different approach and perspective. There’s no doubt that the whole legal profession is going through a massive transformation and the right hires at graduate level are making all the difference. How does your group drive progress? We know our clients’ needs are continuously evolving, so we spend a lot of time in our innovation hub breaking down repetitive processes and identifying transactions where bottlenecks happen – we really are able to drive progress for our clients.
