I am a real estate lawyer with over 20 years’ experience advising local market, national and international clients on all manner of real estate transactions with extensive experience in high value investment acquisitions and disposals, asset management of client portfolio’s and development in predominantly the logistics and industrial sector but also retail, office parks, science and technology parks and mixed-use/retail schemes.

I have particular expertise in investment transactions and working with large UK Real Estate Investment Trusts (REIT), and a leading owner, asset manager and developer of modern warehousing and light industrial property, national and international investor landlord clients, financial institutions and local market investors and developers predominantly focussed on big box and urban warehouse market but also extended to offices, retail and science and technology parks. This work involves a well managed and streamlined KPI-driven asset management offering, which has significantly assisted with estate management, void rates, speed to rent and income generation and risk reduction. I have also acted for various public/private sector developer clients.

Transactions I have worked on include; acting on the acquisition, pre-let and forward funding of a 525,000 sq ft logistics distribution warehouse developed in Corby, Northamptonshire, the disposal of a £205m investment portfolio with 23 separate multi tenanted industrial estates, the disposal of £114m portfolio within three weeks from instruction to completion, project managing all aspects of the disposal process, and the letting of c.500,000 sq ft logistics unit in Sheffield with an exchange of agreement for lease within a ten-day timetable.

Within my experience I manage a team representing various corporate occupiers on their office, retail and industrial requirements. In terms of development projects, I have advised on major industrial development schemes and business districts having previous represented Langtree Property Partners in respect of the strategic advice on the development of the Hollinwood Business Distric with Oldham Borough Council.

In terms of corporate occupiers, I represent very well established property consultants on their own requirements and a large financial institution in respect of its branch premises requirements nationally. My experience working with the financial institution has enabled me to develop a strong understanding of the working arrangements with this bank and has also enabled me to develop a specialist understanding of the electronic communications code and its operation through project managing a vast number of electronic communications code agreements.

Previous expertise working with landlord shopping centre clients Lend Lease, Westfield Shopping Centres, Freeport / Realm Limited in agreement with Hermes.

2022 secured highly recommended in the Manchester Legal Awards and shortlisting at the North West Insider Property Awards.  In Chambers the team that I was part of at Eversheds was ranked Tier 1 and I was recognised individually with the commentary “Kirsty Tinsley-Fenney ‘is super-organised and extremely thorough’ she led on the SEGRO matter”. I am particularly proud to have been individually described by 2017 Legal 500 as ‘brilliant’!
