Brown, Nick – Hot 100

As one of CMS Cameron McKenna’s most consistent performers in property, Nick Brown has been instrumental in securing some of the sexiest deals to pass through the department in recent years.

Brown’s 20-year close relationship with Taylor Woodrow was reaffirmed last April when he secured a place on the builder’s advisory panel alongside Eversheds. Among his key deals, Brown acted on the highly complex £284m sale by Taylor Woodrow of the St Catherine’s estate by Tower Bridge.

A first-time instruction for Crest Nicholson came to fruition last year in the form of the £250m Bristol Harbourside mixed-use development.

One of the most active property lawyers around last year, Brown also advised J Sainsbury on the sale of its former headquarters at Blackfriars and continued to provide advice to the Department of Transport on the real estate aspects of the Channel Tunnel Rail Link.
