In September 2015 Gowling WLG’s real estate partner, Ed Colreavy, led a team of specialists in advising client Telereal Trillium on its acquisition of Lands Improvement Group (LIG) from BlackRock Europe Property Fund III.

LIG specialises in acquiring greenfield and brownfield sites for residential-led redevelopment, an aim which aligns with Telereal Trillium’s own.

Ed’s team was a cross-sector group of corporate and real estate solicitors, with assistance from experts in insurance, tax, employment and pensions to ensure the acquisition provided best value for all concerned.
