- Acted for an individual private investor who acquired three prime assets in central London. The deal, which was a consideration of over £120 million, needed to be executed in a very tight timescale, which was achieved
- Acted on the acquisition of a complex site in the square mile which is currently being developed into a luxury hotel. The investment team worked closely with our corporate real estate, construction and planning experts
