Full Profile

Real Estate

Colin has been qualified as a commercial real estate lawyer for over thirty years and has wide-ranging experience in all aspects of commercial real estate, ranging from industrial, retail, office and residential developments to monitoring (on a worldwide basis) the property issues of corporate transactions.

He is considered by his clients to bring a commercial approach to the table, working with them and the other side to achieve the required result both swiftly and efficiently.  He has been – and continues to be – instructed on a number of high-profile development sites, one involving the development of a academy and student accommodation at Stratford in East London.  Others range from the forward funding of a PRS scheme at Rugby to the proposed sale of a power station site in Wales.

Colin has also completed a number of portfolio sales and leasebacks where the aggregate consideration has exceeded £60 million, as well as acting on the acquisition of several investment properties where the value has been in excess of £100 million.

Colin trained with Stoneham Langton & Passmore, qualifying in 1978 and becoming a partner there in 1980.  He joined McGuinness Finch it is very early days in 1984 and in the next decade helped the firm to develop into one of the best-known niche property firms in the country.  He was also instrumental in bringing the whole McGuinness Finch team to Osborne Clarke in June 2001.  He worked as a partner there until he retired in April 2019 and has been with Clyde & Co since then.
