Real estate

Our global team of real estate lawyers has experience with all kinds of property transactions. We have helped many household-name brands to build their businesses around the world, and assisted even more private clients to make investments or buy homes.

Investing in real estate is about more than acquiring property. It's the heart of your business. It's a sanctuary for your family. It's a foundation for a better future.

Our real estate team advises on commercial, residential and non-profit deals on landmark properties and represents some of the most prominent individuals and institutions in the world. Watch our video to find out more.

Many real estate lawyers can handle the paperwork and property law, but at Withers we listen to your unique concerns and craft a comprehensive approach to your real estate requirements. 

Real estate attorneys with unparalleled knowledge and experience

Our property lawyers have completed commercial, residential and non-profit deals for some of the most prominent individuals and institutions in the world. Whether we’re advising a tenth-generation land-owner in England, helping a fund acquire a resort in South East Asia or structuring an investment in a mixed-use development in San Francisco, our team of property lawyers are discreet, cost-conscious and forward thinking, spotting potential pitfalls before anyone else.

Our strong relationships with institutional investors, financial institutions, surveyors and other industry professionals are important to us. Many of our landed estate clients have relied on the advice of our property solicitors for generations. But we also excel at explaining the intricacies of our markets to successful people who may be making their first foray into real estate investment.

High profile projects

Having acted in high-profile projects around the world, for clients including Yale University, Marriott Hotels, Soho House, Great Ormond Street Hospital and the fashion brand MaxMara, our results speak for themselves.
