Howard Kennedy LLP

Work Department

Real Estate


Graham advises property developers and investors. He handles all aspects of commercial property transactions with particular expertise in residential development and the build to rent sector including student accommodation and co-living.

He is a partner in our commercial development team and his clients include private property companies, property funds, offshore private trusts, retailers and residential developers.

Graham advises on site acquisition and disposal and his practical hands on approach has resulted in him effectively becoming an in-house legal advisor to clients he has represented for over 25 years.

“Getting the deal done is what drives me. When I am asked to advise on transactions, my first instinct is to look for ways to achieve my clients’ objectives, rather than to look for problems which could scupper them – put simply, I find reasons to do the deals for my clients, not issues which might prevent them from completing.” Graham Kaye
