Fladgate has advised on the acquisition of a shopping centre known as The Harpur Centre in Bedford for Harpur Centre Bedford Limited (a wholly owned subsidiary of a Jersey Limited Partnership) from Zurich Assurance Plc. Tellon Capital LLP was the acting asset manager on the transaction.
James Burchell of Tellon Capital commented: “Daniel and his team brought a joined-up approach to the transaction and their input on both a commercial and legal level was fundamental to the transaction and hugely appreciated by us and our mutual clients”.
Gavin Whitney, lead property partner on the acquisition, commented: “Although this was predominantly a real estate transaction, client partner Daniel Polden brought in colleagues from our construction, commercial and employment teams which he and I coordinated so as to offer a seamless service to the client. This deal illustrates Fladgate’s strength and breadth of expertise and our joined-up approach.”
The Fladgate team comprised real estate partners Daniel Polden and Gavin Whitney, commercial partners Alan Wetterhahn and Eddie Powell, construction partner Barry Hembling, real estate associates Aditi Sawjani, Jennifer Johnson, Edmund Willis, Zevi Prager, Roland Brandman, Adam Baker, employment associates Mike Tremeer and Caroline Philipps, and commercial associate Ben Milloy.
