Adam Baker

Senior Associate

I am a real estate lawyer specialising in real estate investment, development and occupier work.


I act for a wide variety of clients from entrepreneurs and high net worth individuals to multinational companies.

Though the issues and opportunities our different clients encounter are often specific to their circumstances and business, my role is to bring the same qualities to every transaction: a personal service; clarity of thought and purpose and a resourceful and flexible approach.

At the weekends I can often be found running around South London.


We advise on all the key issues affecting the property industry, including regeneration and development schemes, investment, funding, construction matters, property disputes, portfolio management, planning, taxation and the creation of corporate structures.


Our real estate investment practice includes a formidable depth of experience advising on investment opportunities in the real estate sector, including sales, acquisitions, joint ventures, tax arrangements, an array of financial work and lettings. We work closely with teams throughout the firm to provide comprehensive and commercially-focused advice on complex investment work for domestic and cross-border clients.


An experienced team with a pedigree of advising across the life cycle of major development and redevelopments from financing, purchase, planning and construction through to lettings and disposal.


Our real estate occupiers team advise on the full range of tenant work, ranging from a start-up business’s first office through to major head office moves. They represent major office occupiers, professional businesses, hoteliers, restaurateurs and retailers, often with national portfolios, in their occupation requirements.


A large and dedicated real estate team providing a full service to clients operating in the sector. The expertise of our lawyers means we can handle all level of transactions from asset management through to the most complex matters while clients benefit from the efficiency a one-stop-shop can provide.


Our lawyers don’t just advise on the law, but help our clients with the commercial implications of legal decisions. Our team focusses on the practicalities of retailing, whether through a busy store or shopping centre, or using e-tail channels.


The leisure sector is experiencing a period of accelerated change and expansion in response to new technologies and changing consumer behaviours. Drawing on the expertise of our diverse firm, our team provides advice on a wide range of legal and business challenges.


The betting and gaming sector has rapidly expanded and evolved in recent years as ‘re-regulation’, new technologies, and changing behaviour have fostered innovation and adaptation on all fronts. We’re experienced in advising clients on this rapidly evolving regulatory environment.
