Berwin Leighton Paisner (BLP) has landed its first deal for Sellar Property Group on the back of its planning work for Sellar's joint venture to build the London Bridge Tower
The instruction from Sellar involves the sale of the Pompey Centre, a £40m business and retail park in Fratton, Portsmouth. The 370,000sq ft centre, which is currently under construction, adjoins Portsmouth Football Club's new 30,000-seat stadium. BLP's appointment follows its recent instruction by Teighmore Limited, a joint venture between Sellar Property Group and CLS Holdings to run the inquiry into the construction of the £60m 60-storey London Bridge Tower, also known as 'The Shard of Glass'. The team on the Portsmouth sale will be lead by Ian Lynch. BLP has no other work in the pipeline for Sellar, but is confident that this deal will help strengthen their relationship. In the past Sellar is understood to have instructed Nabarro Nathanson and Herbert Smith for property work.
