Carina is passionate about working with other professionals and clients on alternative ways of delivering large, mixed used communities across the country. She has a keen focus on alterative asset classes and the use of Patient Capital Investment as a means of facilitating such delivery. She leads our Patient Capital Investment sub-sector, supporting our experienced cross sector, cross-office team. This interest means she has experience of working with all manner of stakeholders on such projects, as well as providing comments on potential structures as they emerge in this sphere, such as Strategic Land and the Stewardship Model.
Carina is a member of the British Property Federation's Build to Rent committee advising and supporting the committee on this ever-changing market.
What can Carina do for you?
Carina is an expert in mixed-use development schemes, real estate led joint venture agreements and large scale projects. She enjoys being an extension of her clients' teams, which include PLCs, companies and landowner consortiums. Carina focuses on structuring and analysing how transactions are delivered, in order to achieve her clients' commercial aim (while also injecting fun in the process).
Supporting your ambitions
Carina's clients are ambitious, diverse and focused. Her highlights include: working with a market leading master developer on innovative means of site assembly (including navigating challenging planning issues), and revolutionising the options of how large scale settlements are delivered in terms of both infrastructure and housing. The other side of Carina's practice involves her helping clients structure, fund and then project managing volume acquisitions and disposals. These projects often span multi disciplines, may involve different jurisdictions, require a close working relationship with the client's board, tax, planning and environmental consultants, and are often time critical.
What do others say?
Clients find Carina "measured and responsive", and say "she is an exceptionally talented real estate lawyer who is one step ahead. She makes our lives a lot easier and has solutions before we've thought of the problem". A large development client of Carina's describes her as "the Mary Poppins of the property world; diligent, tenacious and technically strong".
