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. ‘Working with our tax team we will ensure your real estate investment is structured in the most tax efficient manner. This is particularly important when buying internationally,’ says Henry Stuart, partner in the UK residential real estate team.
Our property solicitors 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, financing an international school in its expansion in Asia, helping a fund acquire a resort in Australia 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.
Having acted in high-profile projects around the world, for clients including Yale University, Marriott Hotels, Great Ormond Street Hospital and the fashion brand MaxMara, our results speak for themselves. ‘At the end of the day it’s achieving something that’s really tangible’, explains construction partner Julie Teal. ‘It is rewarding not just for the lawyers, but for the client because they get the product they were looking for at the right cost. We give them a sense of control and the tools to do it right’.

We also discuss the tech, innovation and different funding sources that can crystalise on that change.
