Real estate

Client-focused and responsive to market trends, our real estate lawyers are adept at delivering solutions in a fast-changing world

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.

National expertise, local insight

Shoosmiths delivers national solutions supplemented with local knowledge, allowing us to bring the best of both worlds to our clients’ transactions. With 13 locations across the UK, our knowledge of our cities and regions, as well as the connections we have in the local markets and sectors, means we can support our clients in a more intimate way, which factors in the nuances of those markets.

Getting to know you

Our solutions-focused approach means we take time to really understand our clients’ objectives and the drivers behind their deals. 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.

Clients appreciate that the firm is "responsive, commercial and expert."
