Nick Mumby advises in relation to all aspects of real estate work, with a particular expertise in complex development projects. He has acted on acquisitions, disposals, developments, planning, leasing, financing and the real estate aspects of corporate transactions.
Nick has worked extensively for corporate vehicles (especially Luxembourg structures) and property funds. He also advises institutional development companies, house-builders, debt-funds and family offices. His experience of acting for both developers and lenders has given him a deep insight into the differing requirements of the various parties and allows him to identify the issues which may arise.
In 2021, Nick advised Aldgate Developments on the sale of their interest in One Braham, London E1 to Union Investments for a purchase price in excess of €500million. This is the largest single property transaction in Europe this year. He has led the team advising on all aspects of the development over the past 10 years, including the construction finance with Starwood Real Estate and the pre-let of the whole building to BT plc for their new global HQ.
Among Nick's recent highlights is working on the Chilmington Green project for Hodson Developments and advising Southend-on-Sea Borough Council on a partnership with Southend United FC to deliver the football club a new stadium and redevelop Roots Hall and on its acquisition of Victoria Shopping Centre.
His clients include major developers (U + I plc and Quintain), investment funds (Clear Sky Capital, Metro Holdings and Starwood European Real Estate), debt-funds (BentallGreenOak and ICG Longbow), development managers (Aldgate Developments and Idé Real Estate) and local authorities (Southend Borough Council, London Borough of Barnet and Wokingham Borough Council).
