We are pleased to announce that Lawrence Stephens has acted on behalf of high-profile international investors to complete transactions of two Central London commercial properties, each with eight-figure price tags.
Working to a tight three-week timetable to turn around simultaneous exchange and completion, Lawrence Stephens Director, Nick Marshall, enabled his clients to acquire Knights Quarter at 14 St John’s Lane in London’s Farringdon and 30-32 Mortimor Street in Fitzrovia, which he achieved with the assistance of Associate, Andreas Panteli.
The Farringdon property, which is currently occupied by law firm Kingsley Napley LLP, was purchased from a private US investor, while the present office of Informa on Mortimor Street was bought from a UK-based investor.
The team successfully executed these multi-million-pound deals in November 2020 by working collaboratively with the client’s wider investment team, reputable agents and tax advisors.
The rapid completion of these two high-calibre property deals are testament to Marshall’s impressive expertise and wealth of experience in dealing with clients in the investment sector; since his hire in September 2020, he has consistently delivered exceptional results for both Lawrence Stephens and its clients.
The swift turnaround of these high-value property deals is yet another addition to the many successes of Lawrence Stephens’ Real Estate team, which has been going from strength to strength in 2020.
Nick Marshall, Director, comments:
These significant transactions demonstrate the continued commitment and appetite for real estate in the UK from international investors, looking beyond the immediate impact of the current pandemic to prepare for growth and prosperity in the near future.
Andreas Panteli, Associate, says:
Contributing to the conclusion of the Mortimor Street transaction has been extremely exciting and rewarding; it is great to know that our legal work is helping to bring about investment in UK property in this difficult climate.
