Executive Director at AEW, Nick Winsley commented: "Mishcon provided us with an excellent level of service on this important mandate. By working closely with the Real Estate department and leveraging off their broad funds expertise, Daniel and the funds team used their valuable market insight to advise us on establishing, agreeing and operating the new venture and worked tirelessly to get it over the line."
AEW relationship partner Ian Paul said "It's great to have advised AEW on this significant investment platform which demonstrates our capability to advise UK real estate clients on mandates with institutional investors who, despite the current climate, are still seeking to make significant investment into UK real estate."
Daniel Greenaway, Funds Partner said: "We are delighted to have been selected to advise AEW on this bespoke arrangement and always enjoy working with clients like AEW who are at the forefront of their sector."
