Expertise

With over 30 years’ experience in the commercial real estate market, Andrew is a partner in the Real Estate team in Manchester.

Experience

Andrew undertakes a full range of non-contentious real estate work including investment acquisitions and disposals, development, portfolio and asset management work and all aspects of commercial landlord and tenant work for both investors and occupiers.

Interests

Given his expertise in the retail sector, strangely Andrew tries to avoid shopping, preferring to watch and participate in a number of sports particularly cricket and occasionally frightening, and even catching, the odd trout on the Derbyshire Wye.

Successes

Advised in connection with the acquisition, management and disposal of numerous shopping centre schemes throughout the UK including Garden Square Letchworth (for Helical Bar Plc), Royal Quays Outlet Centre, North Shields (for North Shields Investment Properties), the Westgate Centre, Stevenage (for WD Westgate Partners LLP) and most notably The Galleria, Hatfield (for WD Limited) which Andrew’s team sold to Land Securities for in excess of £120 million (Land Securities subsequently retaining the team to deal with ongoing management work).

Retained by WD Limited in connection with the development, and subsequent management, of The Kingsgate Centre, a 300,000 square foot shopping complex in Huddersfield, which is now established as the prime retail location in the town.

Recently instructed by N Brown Group Plc in connection with the roll out on the high street of their Simply Be, Jacamo and High & Mighty brands nationally.
