Brian Portner

Consultant, Commercial Real Estate

Brian, who graduated from The London School of Economics, is the eponymous founding partner of the firm and head of the Commercial Property Department. He has a wealth of experience acting for pension funds, banks and property companies, both public and private.

He has particular expertise in development projects, often advising on suitable structures as well as dealing with joint ventures, funding, building contracts, environmental issues and planning (including planning agreements with local authorities, particularly where there is a social housing element).

Brian also deals with corporate transactions, particularly where there is a property element.

His interests include cinema, theatre, music, playing the piano, reading, football (sadly now watching rather than playing), yoga, jogging with his German shepherd dog and spending time with his family.
