Property & Real Estate
Providing outstanding leadership talent
Our Property and Real Estate Practice has extensive experience of supporting a wide range of Real estate clients including listed property groups, private/family-controlled property investment businesses, REITs, real estate private equity firms, strategic land managers and developers. We also work with financial services/investor groups within the sector providing lending, debt and equity funding services. We have a strong track record of reshaping boards in a sector notorious for a lack of diversity.
We have expertise in Executive, Non-Executive Director and Chair appointments across different asset classes ranging from commercial/light industrial to hotels, mixed use, retail, logistics and residential assets. Our track record and focus on connecting world class property business leaders to exciting strategic and operational challenges enables our team to stay at the forefront of changing market trends and to build diverse pipelines of talent. Our Property and Real Estate team works with organisations at all stages of development including pre-IPO propositions, family interests seeking board members with an alignment to long term investor interests, private/public businesses seeking to raise their profile through board appointments to attract larger institutional investor backing.

In recent years, the real estate sector has undergone significant changes ranging from sustained discounting and shortening leases within the retail sector to the unlocking of potential value in regional brownfield assets. We have also seen new entrants within the commercial office sector delivering innovative digitalised and personalised experiences for users. Technology, changing demographics and the cyclical patterns of liquidity in the real estate market continue to provide for constant strategic challenges. The outbreak of COVID-19 in spring 2020 is reshaping the sector and we are partnering increasingly with businesses seeking to diversify and add ‘bench-strength’ to their existing boards.
