Chambers UK ranks the best lawyers and law firms handling all aspects of non-contentious real estate work relating to both commercial and residential property, including investment transactions, development, corporate structuring, acquisitions, portfolio management, and landlord and tenant matters. These rankings do not take into account contentious real estate work or real estate finance as these are considered separately.
As the largest and most active market we cover, our London rankings are designed to reflect the depth and variety of work being handled by solicitors at all levels. Firms are therefore ranked in one of three sub-tables depending on numerous factors, including transactional values.
For Mainly Mid-Market, we typically expect to see firms involved in investment transactions within the range of £50-150 million, though with the expectation that the top-ranked teams may also be involved in some deals of a higher value. They may also advise on development work, including but not limited to urban and industrial regeneration, smaller mixed-use redevelopment schemes and matters concerning alternative asset classes. They will also usually handle a broader range of leasing work on behalf of both landlord and occupier clients, including the management of some considerable property portfolios.
