Industrial and logistics


The continuing strength and innovation amongst occupiers as well as the changing face of retail from high street to desktop means the industrial and logistics market has a crucial part to play in the land economy over the coming decade.

Trowers & Hamlins' Real Estate team is active in the sector, and in keeping with our breadth of expertise and skills across Real Estate, we do so from a number of different directions, acting for developers, investors and institutions, financiers and occupiers.

We add value by simplify the complex and solving problems as they arise, no matter how large or small the scheme. Whether we're acting for one of the largest pension funds to secure the purchase and leaseback of a key strategic rail distribution centre; for a public authority on the development funding of a bioscience facility, or for a private developer of an enterprise park mixing power generation and industrial storage, we unpick complexities and unlock inherent problems with the minimum of fuss. This pragmatic approach marks us out from others in this sector. Combining our expertise in development and finance we help to deliver large logistics and industrial, mixed-use and infrastructure led schemes.

We act for a range of institutional and private investors, such as Kames Capital and Hermes, on the acquisition and management of portfolios which include an increasing emphasis on the industrial and logistics sector given the opportunities in this area for forward thinking landlords. Our commercial occupier clients who operate in the industrial and logistics sector (including global organisations such as BT Group plc) understand the structural importance of cutting edge accommodation to their businesses and the need for streamlined advice and documentation.
