What can David do for you?
David has 20 years of practical, hands-on experience advising parties to real estate transactions which involve both the public and private sectors. He acts on complex procurement projects, as well as strategic acquisitions and disposals, advising Government departments, developers, land owners and investors. Such projects involve a number of specialist considerations, which David is ideally placed to advise on.
Supporting your ambitions
A really good recent example of David's work, which showcases his technical skills and sector knowledge, is the strip income project he completed between a University, bank investor and student accommodation operator (all household names) in the last year. Strip income is a procurement methodology which de-risks a land purchase or development deal for the investor, but is highly complex. Considerations such as bank security, tax, responsibility for repair and the application of leasehold enfranchisement rules must be addressed. David has years of experience advising on lease based legal structures and was able to achieve the optimum outcome for all.
