Simon Schipper

Legal Director

I have more than 25 years’ experience advising clients on commercial real estate transactions – investment, development and commercial leasing – across different sectors of the UK commercial real estate market including offices, retail, logistics/industrial and hospitality.

Clients have included major funds, private and listed property companies (as diverse as hotel companies and housing associations), charities, local authorities, banks, City and US law firms and private individuals.

I trained at a niche firm in the West End before moving shortly after qualification to a leading City law firm, then the largest law firm in the world and one of the leading law firms for UK real estate. I subsequently spent a number of years at a top regional law firm based in Bristol before joining Cripps Pemberton Greenish in 2006.
