Adviser Profile

A property specialist, Mark Levine has headed the real estate team at Simons Muirhead Burton since September 2016. The firm, which has been around since the 1970s, attracted the lawyer with its 'strong reputation for being creative and innovative.'

'We all share the ethos of hard work and putting our clients first,' says Levine. With his help, its real estate offering has increased dramatically and contributed to part of the firm's expansion into a full service, West End firm.

Levine notably acts for developers, investors, asset managers and finance lenders who are active in the mid-market, as well as operators in the hospitality, leisure and retail sectors. In particular, he has been involved with development finance lending for OakNorth Bank and hotel development projects for Z Hotels. Clients range from entrepreneurial businesses and individuals to established corporate investors with an international profile, all of whom can benefit from its legal expertise, understanding of the marketplace and network of connections.

He likes to keep his personal life balanced too, spending time with his wife and keeping his two children entertained.

At weekends, he can often be seen cheering on Chelsea.
