With one of the largest multi-disciplinary real estate practices in the UK, Shoosmiths brings leading insight and expertise to any property transaction or dispute, regardless of size or complexity, ensuring a highly-skilled and commercial approach that goes beyond simply advising on ‘the law’.
It’s not just what we do, though. It’s also how we do it.
Getting to know you
We like to get to know our clients, ensuring we fully align with their wider real estate ambitions and appreciate their diverse requirements and challenges. We want to understand their strategic drivers so that we can be proactive, intuitive and get them to their goals swiftly. One size does not fit all.
Delivering real estate projects which help shape the landscape and communities in which we live and work is a genuine motivator for our lawyers and at the heart of Shoosmiths’ real estate offering. Our lawyers are naturally inquisitive and excited both by the law and doing deals.
We love what we do and it shows.
The UK’s built environment is constantly evolving to meet the needs of a rapidly-changing world, meaning it is more important than ever to choose creative, responsive and efficient lawyers who are passionate about property. Through our involvement with industry bodies and relationships across all areas of the sector, we are constantly tracking and monitoring the impact of market trends and future legislative changes. We are always ready to innovate and think differently to deliver solutions that are right for our clients and which factor in the broader market outlook.
We also don’t simply see ourselves as ‘deal-doers’. Where possible, we act as ‘deal-makers’ – proactively looking for opportunities to bring clients and contacts together where there is a mutual interest. In short, we live and breathe real estate.
We also like to think that we are good people to do business with.
Shoosmiths works with leading funders, investors, developers, corporates and public sector organisations at national, international and regional level and were named Legal Team of the Year at the Estates Gazette Awards 2018 and recognised as a Top 10 UK real estate firm in The Lawyer’s Global Real Estate 50 (ranked by UK partners in the real estate sector).
