Real Estate

Shulmans has one of the strongest real estate teams in the UK – the key to this is how we bring our specialists together to provide tactical and strategic support to both private and public sector clients.

A comprehensive real estate service

We have a deep knowledge of the UK real estate market and a comprehensive network of connections both in the UK and internationally. This means that we can plan and execute everything, from individual disposals and acquisitions to complex projects involving specialists from a range of disciplines such as property development, property finance, planning, property risk management and construction.

Additionally, our individual real estate teams are market leaders in their own right. For example, we have a national reputation for excellence in residential development and we advise some of the country’s leading housebuilders. We are market leaders in the real estate aspects of telecommunications; and we are one of the few firms in the UK to have a specialist team advising overseas investors who want to acquire and manage portfolios in this country.

In 2016, the Shulmans real estate team won the ‘Property Law Firm of the Year’ accolade at the Yorkshire Property Industry Awards and the 'Commercial Property' category at the Yorkshire Legal Awards. The team was also 'highly commended' in 2015 at both these awards.

Below is our submission video to the Yorkshire Legal Awards 2016 (filmed in June 2016).
