Industrial and logistics
  1. Industrial and logistics

    We provide legal expertise in respect of all aspects of industrial and logistics property, advising developers, investors and end-users.

    Our team of experts makes a positive difference to our clients, because we have a real understanding of the industry and its challenges. We are at the forefront of thought leadership in the sector, having published numerous articles on recent developments from “beds and sheds” to multi-storey distribution centres. Our team has spoken at industry events and previously hosted a “think tank” in Frankfurt.

    We have contacts with all the major brokers, being a founder and sponsor of the annual Shedmasters event previously taking place during MIPIM week and now being a standalone event in Barcelona in 2022.
