Real Estate

Lodders’ real estate lawyers provide city expertise and service at an outstanding value.

We offer a partner-led, proactive service tailored to the particular requirements of each transaction, where every client is treated with equal importance. Our real estate lawyers, the majority of whom have large firm experience, are focused on providing commercial solutions with speed and efficiency.

Lodders Real Estate practice is the largest in the Midlands, with 30 specialist real estate, commercial property, planning, construction and highways legal experts, including nine partners, operating from the firm’s offices in Stratford upon Avon, Cheltenham and Birmingham. The size of our team means we have the strength and depth of experience, whilst remaining small enough to enable our clients to get to know the individual or team working for them.

Led by partner Mark Miller, the Lodders team provides a full and efficient service for investors, developers and owner-occupiers from our Stratford upon Avon and Cheltenham offices. We act on behalf of national and regional commercial property developers, residential property developers, investment companies and funders.

Our Real Estate team was commended as Top Tier in the 2019 and 2020 editions Legal 500 rankings, with individual recommendations for Nick East and Mark Miller, both recognised as leading individuals. In the 2018 Legal 500 rankings, Paul Mourton was highlighted as ‘diligent, commercial and approachable’.
