March 2020: EG to attend MIPIM 2020 Real Estate Conference in Cannes from Monday 9th March to Friday 13th March 2020

Our Real Estate Credentials

Edwards Gibson is immersed in the Real Estate sector. Over the past five years we have undertaken three large (5 partners +) real estate led team moves and have recently successfully represented well known individuals and teams of lawyers specialising in:


  • Commercial Real Estate
  • Private Equity Real Estate
  • Real Estate/ Real Asset Funds
  • Real Estate Finance
  • Construction
  • Planning


Taking the real estate sector as a whole - we believe that, over the past three years, we have placed more real estate sector partners than any other recruiter in London.


Prior to joining Edwards Gibson, our Senior Adviser Jon Vivian was himself a leading Real Estate law firm Partner and Head of Real Estate at a Silver Circle law firm as well as Head of the London office of a Top 25 UK law firm.


Why are we at MIPIM?

For the past five years MIPIM has been a fixture in the Edwards Gibson calendar. We have previously found MIPIM to be the premier European real estate conference attended by our law firm and in-house clients and we want to take the opportunity to spend time with our clients and contacts, to understand what they want to achieve and how to help them get there.


Our strategy for 2020 is simple - we want to work with a small number of ambitious law firms and in-house organisations committed to growth in the real estate sector and, to complement this, we want to continue our success in representing leading individuals and real estate teams.


What can we do for you at MIPIM?

We are a knowledge-based partner level legal recruitment firm. We pride ourselves on understanding our clients, and the markets in which they work, so we can provide valuable market insights, guidance on partnership recruitment and specific strategic advice on team moves. If you would like advice on confidential representation or on partnership recruitment, we would be keen to meet you.


We are at MIPIM from Monday 9th March to Friday 13th March 2020.
