Capital Markets and Leasing
I’m an Equity Partner at Levy Real Estate and Head of the firm’s Retail Leasing and Capital Markets team.
We specialise in finding the best brands and operators for shop, restaurant bar, gym and cafes across Central London to enable landlord’s to maximise the value to their holdings. Key instructions include the purchase and subsequent asset management of 40 Strand for £195 Million, the leasing and asset management of the Queensway Estate on behalf of Bourne Capital and Leadenhall Market on behalf of the Corporation of London.
We have a particular specialism in the St James’s, Mayfair, Soho and West London markets, and our client base encompasses landlords who own a wide range of property across the capital.
Away from the office I like to ski, play tennis and run the dogs on the weekend.
Leasing and Lease Advisory
I’m a Partner in the retail team focussing on the Central London retail and restaurant sectors.
I advise a range of clients on lease advisory, restructuring and leasing matters. Particular specialisms include providing strategic advice to clients on multi-unit estates or schemes to enhance value, securing vacant possession prior to redevelopment and acting as Expert Witness in high profile third party disputes. I work closely with the leasing team sourcing new brands and operators and am an expert on traditional and turnover leases. Over the last 18 months I’ve helped clients navigate their way through the coronavirus pandemic, restructuring c 40 retail and restaurant leases at Leadenhall Market to turnover arrangements and agreeing numerous COVID assistance packages to ensure retailers and restauranteurs receive much needed assistance and landlords keep units occupied and activated.
Outside of work I coach kids rugby at the weekend and enjoy spending time with my fiancé and two year old son. I played for the Honourable Artillery Company rugby club for many years and was a keen runner but have reluctantly had to shift my focus onto cycling and golf after sustaining a knee injury.
