Record year for law firm

The number, value and type of complex commercial property transactions completed by real estate lawyers at regional law firm Lodders reached record levels in 2017.

This year the real estate team completed property deals with a combined value well in excess of £800million.

With individual values from £3million up to £250million, the deals span a wide geographic area from Chepstow to London, Birmingham to Southampton and Bath to Telford and within Oxfordshire, Warwickshire and Worcestershire, in a range of market sectors including housing, logistics, automotive, hospitality, and retail.

All transactions have been handled by Lodders' lawyers based at its Cheltenham and Stratford upon Avon offices.

The real estate team is led by partner Paul Mourton (pictured), who said: "In recent years, the team has seen sustained demand for our real estate and commercial property advice, particularly our specialist logistics sector expertise, with a number of transactions for clients buying and selling distribution warehouses across the country.

"We continue to act for many of the region's biggest housebuilders and commercial and residential developers on land acquisition and disposal agreements and longer-term strategic land promotion and option agreements."
