            Distressed Real Estate

            We offer legal and commercial solutions to preserve value and enhance realisations on distressed property workout and/or recovery situations.

            Distressed Real Estate

            Our distressed real estate specialists provide a complete expertise, spanning residential and commercial distressed property portfolios, existing security, further investment, sale or acquisition of distressed property assets and the enforcement options available. 

            We act for banks, property funds, lenders, surveyors and fixed charge receivers on matters relating to UK assets, as well as those concerning foreign lending and offshore jurisdictions.

            With a particular expertise in managing higher value lending on commercial estates, as well as high-volume receiverships, such as residential buy-to- let portfolios, the matters on which we work range from the small (£200k) through to £20m+ commercial estates.

            What sets us apart is our commitment to providing an efficient pathway through the complexities of every matter. Our clients trust us to understand the entire process. Our approach draws on our many years of legal, regional and industry experience. By setting out a rigorous process, underpinned by automated ways of working, we’re able to deliver the very best expertise in a timely, swift and cost-effective way. Where other lawyers may focus on the transaction, we look at the whole picture to get you the results you need.
