Success for Ashurst's real estate team at British Legal Awards 2012

26 November 2012

Ashurst was named Property Team of the Year at the British Legal Awards 2012, organised by Legal Week and held on 22 November 2012 at London's Old Billingsgate Market.

Ashurst's real estate team received the award, together with Eversheds, in recognition of its work advising the developer, Sellar Property on the redevelopment of the London Bridge Quarter (The Shard and The Place).

The Shard, together with the 17 storey neighbouring building The Place, makes up the 1.5 million square feet of mixed-use space known as London Bridge Quarter. The £1.5 billion new commercial district is located at one of London's most significant transport interchanges and will transform and upgrade London Bridge station and the surrounding area.

Commenting on the award, Ashurst's head of real estate, Richard Vernon said:

"We are delighted to receive this award for the second year running which reflects the team's ongoing status as one of the premier real estate practices in the market. This is a fantastic result and we look forward to continuing to advise the developer as The Shard moves from the development stage to being a fully let investment."
