Merle Wray, Partner, Real Estate
I am a real estate lawyer with over twenty years' experience in major regeneration projects across both public and private sectors.
My expertise includes complex development work and property joint ventures as well as commercial and residential investment.
I have undertaken work on many town and city centre redevelopment schemes in partnership with local authorities and I have been involved in a large number of mixed-use housing regeneration schemes, in particular of former MoD and hospital sites.
I advise on the acquisition and construction of warehousing and office investment schemes and healthcare facilities.
I have extensive experience of the European procurement rules and their applicability to development agreements and regeneration projects, compulsory purchase powers and public duties to get best consideration and of state aid.
I have co-authored articles for Estates Gazette on development agreements and public procurement and on tax incremental finance.
In my spare time I love books and cinema.
