Surprisingly BIG in real estate

With more than 180 lawyers working across 15 specialist areas, the Real Estate group offers a full service across the entire commercial real estate sector.

The Wragge & Co Real Estate group is noted in Chambers UK 2013 for its "outstanding customer service, consistently high level of professionalism and excellent quality of advice." According to Legal 500 2012 the group "brings the right person to the job each time, and the level of service is extremely high".

Its teams include asset management, commercial development, investment, finance, funds & structuring, litigation, specialist transactions, shopping centres, social housing, residential development, retail and leisure.

Real estate is ranked as band 1 in the Chambers UK West Midlands section and tier 1 in Legal 500 2013. With "strong levels of service, excellent senior knowledge and good property development experience... the team is recommended for high-value and complex investments" (Legal 500 2013).

2013 has seen notable additions to the Real Estate team, with Reena Patel taking the total number of real estate partners to 32. Her move follows the arrival of a four-lawyer team in Paris led by Constance de La Hosseraye and two senior hires in the UK, Michael Hallowell and Andrew Harman.
