Based in the Hogan Lovells London office, Jackie Newstead is the firm’s Global Head of Real Estate. For more than 30 years, she has been helping investors, developers, and occupiers with acquisitions and disposals of investments, some held directly, and some held through investments vehicles. 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 has also built up particular knowledge in the hotel and leisure sector, guiding owners and operators through acquisitions and disposals, financings, and management arrangements.

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.
