Ogier Jersey and BVI teams advise on £95.5 million Bristol real estate deal

Ogier has advised on the purchase of landmark office building 10 Canons Way in Bristol.

Ogier advised on both the Jersey and BVI law aspects of the £95.5 million purchase of the fully-let 176,611 sq ft building by South Korean investors, through its Jersey-based Jersey and BVI teams.

The investors are advised by Knight Frank Investment Management, and Ogier worked with lead counsel Ashurst.

Ogier partner Simon Schilder said: "This is yet another example of investment in quality UK commercial real estate in 2017 – although the headlines have been dominated by London real estate, we have seen significant deals outside of the capital, and this is a good example.

"We are pleased to have been able to advise on this deal, and in particular to have been able to showcase the seamless BVI and Jersey legal capability of our Jersey based team."

Simon led the BVI law team which included senior associate Marie-Claire Fudge, while partner Raulin Amy led the Jersey law team which included managing associate Alexander Curry. Associate Euan Hutcheon and trainee solicitor Daniel Whalen also worked on the deal.
