Nabarro, slaughters handed land sec roles

Slaughter and May is advising Land Securities on the corporate aspects of its three-way demerger.

Corporate partner Gavin Brown will be leading the team, while Nabarro expects to be playing a “coordinating role on real estate” aspects of the reorganisation, according to relationship partner Nicholas Vergette.

The UK’s largest real estate investment trust will split into three. Nabarro corporate real estate partner Chris Luck recently advised Land Securities on the formation of The Harvest Limited Partnership – a seven-year 50-50 joint venture with Sainsbury’s.

CMS Cameron McKenna real estate partner Nick Brown and corporate partner Barney Hearnden acted for Sainsbury’s.
