Top Five Property Lawyers
A tier-one counsel to UHNWs, wealth managers, private banks, trustees and family offices, Roberjot has built an enviable contacts book over the past nineteen years. Those contacts range from London to Jersey, Guernsey, Monaco, Switzerland and Singapore (she also built the firm’s booming London residential property practice from scratch).
Roberjot enjoys particular experience acting on behalf of residential and commercial developers, from purchase to end use, including and all environmental and planning needs — from super-prime London flats to large country estates. She also advises private and commercial banks and acts on the acquisition of hotels and ‘trophy’ buildings in the UK (she’s also experienced in handling banking and security documents for lenders).
The warm and engaging Roberjot says the London property market is ‘still very much active,’ after a busy twelve months busy working on deals for some of the capital’s most luxurious abodes — including ‘one of the largest sales of 2016’, she says with hertrademark discretion still intact. She’s also noticed a boom in instructions on high-value refinances, and an increase in collective enfranchisement and leasehold extensions.
‘The aftershocks of the Brexit referendum were felt for some time, but a renewed optimism has developed within the property market that has translated into strong activity within the high-net-worth sector,’ Roberjot explains, adding that while property prices may not reach pre-Brexit levels any time soon, instructions on high-value properties continue to surge — a trend she sees continuing through 2017.
