    Bricks & Mortar: How to interpret a judgment

    Bricks & Mortar: How to interpret a judgment

    This week’s episode of Bricks & Mortar sees Sarah Jackman joined in the EG studio by her colleague on the legal & professional desk: Jess Harrold. Amongst his many skills, Jess is a seasoned court reporter, having spent numerous years covering the courts for both the EG and other news organisations.
    He lifts the lid on how best to approach a judgment, where its key information is contained and how, with a bit of practice, you can make light work of getting to grips with a lengthy report. Jess guides listeners through the process by making reference to a case currently under appeal: Fearn v The Board of Trustees of the Tate Gallery [2019] EWHC 246 (Ch).

    "This feels like a mental health emergency"

    When EG revealed last November that more than a quarter of real estate professionals had considered taking their own life, the industry was stunned. But not into silence. Stunned and then prompted into taking action, into speaking up, into embracing the fact that it is OK to not be OK sometimes.
    Mental health charity Mind head of workplace wellbeing programmes Faye McGuinness, JLL head of investor facilities management Neil Worrall, and Fisher German managing partner Andrew Bridge joins EG reporter Lucy Alderson to discuss what the immediate next steps property needs to take to start to lower these shocking statistics.

    The three Ps of making property work

    The three Ps of making property work

    At Knight Frank’s annual London breakfast briefing, the need for real estate to continue to shift the dial when it comes to customer service was made abundantly clear.
    Buildings without occupiers are valueless and occupiers - and their employees - are becoming increasingly discerning and demanding when it comes to space requirements. Office space is now much more than just a cost to occupiers, it can be the difference between winning and losing commercial.
    In this podcast we talk to global head of occupier research at Knight Frank Lee Elliott about what landlords need to understand about their customers to have “property with purpose, property that performs and ultimately property that prevails”.

    Law & Borders: Ashurst goes global with real estate dispute resolution team

    Law & Borders: Ashurst goes global with real estate dispute resolution team

     
    International law firm Ashurst has announced the next evolution of the firm's global real estate dispute resolution practice as part of an initiative to assist clients navigate the risks and liabilities of regional and multi-jurisdictional real estate investment.
     The initiative focuses on providing clients with an integrated approach to commercial real estate disputes, derived from the firm's broad expertise in managing high-value, large and complex disputes, combined with extensive industry understanding to provide clients seamless real estate solutions from across Ashurst's network of international offices.
    Alison Hardy, Ashurt’s head of real estate dispute resolution, said: "Over the past few years, real estate has become an increasingly global asset, and as such we are seeing increasing globalisation in real estate disputes work. International disputes are often complex – both legally and sometimes culturally, involving fusion of laws and, not infrequently, politics, and having a global real estate disputes group will allow us to offer a seamless service to our clients.
    “By working together as one global team, we are able to pool resources, so that if clients need advice in a particular jurisdiction, we will have specialists in that location, and the global team to handle any size dispute."
    Hardy joins EG's Jess Harrold in the Studio to further discuss the move, and how the global approach will benefit clients.
