Within: Real estate funds

Bryan Cave Leighton Paisner LLP 's real estates fund practice - drawn from the Berwin Leighton Paisner team prior to the merger - 'is always responsive, and provides a high quality of advice because it understands its clients' businesses'. Clients value Justin Cornelius' 'sound guidance and pragmatic approach' - he advised Clearbell Capital on Clearbell Property Partners III, which raised £350m for a private equity real estate fund. Antony Grossman also handled the fund vehicle elements of Canary Wharf Group and LandSec's sale of 20 Fenchurch Street, commonly known as "The Walkie-Talkie", to the Lee Kum Kee group. Simon Pollock advised Hermes Investment Management on forming an investment pool for the Paradise Circus regeneration scheme in Birmingham. Other clients include United Student Living, which Cornelius advised on forming a fund with GIC to acquire a student housing development in Birmingham, and Morgan Sindall Investments, which he advised on forming a fund with the Universities Superannuation Scheme. Other work includes matters concerning listed real estate vehicles.
