We are delighted that Forsters’ top ranked property teams have been recognised in Legal Week's British Legal Awards 2021.

Head of Commercial Real Estate, Andrew Crabbie, commented: "We are thrilled to be taking home this award having been shortlisted for the last two years. Forsters is, and will always remain, a firm with property at the centre of its practice so it is pleasing to receive this impartial recognition of the team's work.”

Forsters accept their award for 'Property Team of the Year at the British Legal Awards 2021.

Partner Katherine Ekers, who has been instrumental in managing the St. Giles Circus Development, which featured in our award submission, commented: “I am delighted to see our Commercial Real Estate team recognised for our work in advising Consolidated Developments on the redevelopment of St. Giles Circus which is the result of four years’ work involving a team of 15 lawyers across various practice areas and is an indicative matter to the size and complexity we regularly handle. The whole team will share in this award but special thanks to Andrew himself who worked alongside me on this matter and Matthew Evans, Emily Holdstock, Simon Collins and Naomi Trinh, Partners and Counsel across our Planning, Construction, Real Estate Finance and Corporate teams who have been involved in the ongoing work for Consolidated Developments.”
