London > Real estate > Commercial property: investment

Slaughter and May advises on all aspects of large-scale development projects, particularly in the sports sector, where the ‘excellent real estate team’ has demonstrable experience in major stadia mandates. In the corporate occupier space, high-profile headquarters relocations take up a large proportion of the practice’s workload – the team is notably well-regarded for its work for other major law firms. The team is well-placed to leverage the expertise of the firm’s corporate and tax groups to handle all forms of direct and indirect investments, particularly portfolio transactions, often involving a cross-border element. Jane Edwarde leads the team and has considerable experience in sports-related projects, such as advising Everton Football Club on the development of its 52,000-seat stadium at Bramley-Moore Dock. John Nevin has a ‘marvellous talent for distilling the key points’ when advising on acquisitions, developments and letting matters, while ‘exceptional’ senior counsel Simon Bartle is another key member of the team.
