Based in the Hogan Lovells London office, Jackie Newstead has been helping investors, developers, and occupiers with acquisitions and disposals of investments, some held directly, and some held through investment vehicles. Over the last 30 years she has worked with most asset classes, from office, retail, and logistics to hotels, residential, student housing, car auction sites, and bingo halls. She has also aided clients with the development of land sites across the asset classes–from land acquisition, to finance, letting, and ultimate sale.  Jackie served for many years as the head of the firm’s global Real Estate Practice and Industry Sector.

Jackie has also built up particular knowledge in the hotel and leisure sector, guiding owners and operators through acquisitions and disposals, financings, and management arrangements.

Jackie is a member of the British Property Federation, the Investment Property Forum, the Association of Real Property and Infrastructure and the Urban Land Institute. She also chairs the City of London Law Society Land Law Committee. She is recommended by The Legal 500, Chambers UK, and Who's Who Legal for real estate. UK Super Lawyers puts her in their top 100 lawyers in the UK (and in the top 50 women.) She won the award for "Best Woman Solicitor Managing a Large Practice" at the Association of Women Solicitors Awards 2012, and was "Highly Commended" at the Law Society Excellence Awards for Legal Business Woman of the Year.
