He brings a wealth of knowledge in investment, disposal, development, letting and joint venture transactions. Whether the property is a major mixed-use development (or redevelopment), offices, retail, offshore energy asset, in the private rented sector or otherwise Nick is able to deliver commercially focused strategic advice.
