Real Estate

Shulmans has one of the strongest real estate teams in the UK – the key to this is how we bring our specialists together to provide tactical and strategic support to both private and public sector clients.

A comprehensive real estate service

Below is our submission video to the Yorkshire Legal Awards 2016 (filmed in June 2016).

We have a deep knowledge of the UK real estate market and a comprehensive network of connections both in the UK and internationally. This means that we can plan and execute everything, from individual disposals and acquisitions to complex projects involving specialists from a range of disciplines such as property development, property finance, planning, property risk management and construction.

Additionally, our individual Real Estate teams are market leaders in their own right. For example, we have a national reputation for excellence in residential development and we advise some of the country’s leading housebuilders. We are market leaders in the real estate aspects of telecommunications; and we are one of the few firms in the UK to have a specialist team advising overseas investors who want to acquire and manage portfolios in this country.

Shulmans Real Estate Network Logo

We had our annual Shulmans Real Estate Network event on 12 September 2018 at Aspire. As prominent players in the Real Estate industry, we brought together many influential people on the evening, and facilitated the making of many new connections.  

Survey results

On the evening we conducted a survey of guests in attendance focussing on some of the key issues facing the sector. A total of 70 leaders from the Real Estate sector answered questions ranging from the impact of Brexit to the future of Northern Powerhouse. An infographic summarising the results is available to view here.

Expertise and capability

The strength of the Real Estate services we offer was shared in a presentation which detailed key client projects and expertise, and also in a brochure which is available here.

In 2018, the Shulmans Real Estate team won the ‘Property Law Firm of the Year’ accolade at the Yorkshire Property Industry Awards and were shortlisted for the 'Commercial Property' category at the Yorkshire Legal Awards.

Shulmans is a member of the British Property Federation (BPF), which is the membership organisation for, and the voice of, the UK real estate industry. The BPF represents and promotes the interests of all those with a stake in real estate in the UK, including owners, developers, funders (equity and debt), agents and advisers. The BPF works with government and regulatory bodies to help the real estate industry grow and thrive, to the benefit of its members and the economy. Because its membership is industry wide, the BPF can provide government and regulators with the knowledge they need to make decisions. The BPF has an important regional focus and our membership will help us to be at the forefront of the BPF’s work in the region.
