- Financing of property (we have acted for Luxembourg-based lenders financing a UK based house builder and an Indian/UK joint venture company receiving funding from the UK subsidiary of an Indian bank providing finance for the acquisition of an educational institution);
- Educational institutions (including the acquisition of a campus site for development as a medical school by a joint venture of parties based in the UK and India);
- Farms, agricultural land and landed estates (including the distribution of UK property assets in accordance with an Australian court order to internationally based beneficiaries);
- Public houses, hotels and other licensed premises;

- Mines, minerals and quarrying; and
- Wind, solar and other renewable projects.
Recently we were referred to Aaron & Partners for assistance with a complex multinational deal, acquiring a campus for a UK based university which included aspects of conveyancing and employment law. We initially worked with Andrew Lees who dealt with all the conveyancing efficiently and effectively. His service was second to none and he made everything extremely simple and straightforward. As part of this larger deal, Aaron & Partners’ Ben Mason managed the employment law challenges that arose with the acquisition of the land and buildings on the campus. They are an exciting and flexible firm who are growing in the right way.
