Gerard LeCain

Real Estate Team
Solicitor

EXPERTISE

My role is to help organisations and entrepreneurs with their real estate interests, particularly in the fields of disposals, acquisitions and assignments, investment, development and leasing. I work closely with them to help realise their objectives, and resolve any challenges that put them at risk financially.

I benefit from working with investors, developers, landlords, and tenants. I also have a developing specialism in the retail, banking and technology sectors, as well as the specialised needs of manufacturing clients, whether they are leasing properties or operating their own purpose-built facilities.

Supporting this expertise is an understanding of real estate finance. I guide lenders and borrowers through the financing process, making sure they don’t miss out on any opportunities, while minimising their short and long-term risk.
