Real Estate

In terms of commercial, residential and new homes transactions handled by our property teams each year, Coffin Mew is one of the top Real Estate firms in the country and so we understand the sector inside out.

Our services to the Real Estate sector go way beyond transaction advice: our Real Estate sector team brings together lawyers who have particular experience and interest in the sector and provide broader services to businesses and individuals active in it.

For example, our planning, construction & property litigation lawyers provide specialist advice on these wider aspects of our clients’ real estate projects; our corporate, commercial, employment, restructuring and insolvency lawyers provide advice in these areas tailored to the specific needs of Real Estate businesses; and our private client lawyers provide bespoke services to Real Estate business owners, directors, employees and contractors.

They are one of the most approachable firms, very down-to-earth, but look at the wider picture.

They understand us, our organisation and situation completely, and provide a great service. Having a strong personal relationship with our lawyer, being able to pick up the phone and have a chat, to be informal and for him to speak in ordinary language not legalese, is extremely helpful. Nick Leavey is professional, but informal, and if something is urgent I would not hesitate to call him.
