Work Department

Real estate.

Position

Nichola has been in the Dentons’ Real Estate team for over 30 years and her practice covers all aspects of commercial real estate work. Over the last 10 years, Nichola has mainly focussed on significant investment transactions for overseas investors, particularly from the Middle East. In that role, Nichola has represented many leading corporates/families and works very closely with Dentons’ international tax team. These investor clients have either bought for their own account, in joint venture or as participants/promoters of funds which means Nichola has a good understanding and experience of all forms of investment.

Nichola has also been involved in a number of high-profile developments acting for investors, developers or anchor tenants. For example, Nichola worked for Aviva and its co-investors on the award winning Paddington Central scheme in London (covering its acquisition, development, letting and ultimate sale after nearly 14 years from first instruction). She also represented Al Jazeera when it became one of the first office tenants in The Shard.
