With expertise in the restaurant and retail sectors, Teacher Stern LLP is especially recommended for letting transactions, where the team can provide ‘a continuity of service that one might lose with a larger firm’. The team includes Vanessa Cassidy and Paul Adam, who advised AP16 on the grant of a lease at Heathrow Airport to British Airways, conditional on construction works. Similarly, Russell Raphael has acted for Lola’s Cupcakes in relation to lease transactions in numerous London locations. Investment highlights have included Oliver Azzuri advising on the sale of a property with consent for student housing, and Eytan Weisz assisting a property group with a freehold purchase in Harrow. In the development space, Reetu Chopra advised Vindex Properties, in a joint venture with Regal Homes, on a mixed-use development project in Shoreditch. Additional contacts include Victoria Hodges and David Irwin.
