Coffer Group Awarded Specialist Adviser of the Year

December 14, 2015

The Coffer Group has affirmed its position as the market’s favoured specialist adviser to the leisure property sector by winning Specialist Adviser of the Year 2015 at the prestigious Estates Gazette Awards.

Here is what Estates Gazette said makes us so special: “Leisure is one of the hottest tickets in property right now and The Coffer Group excels at it, advising on the biggest and most high-profile deals.

“Posting a 25% rise in turnover, the business capitalised on its relationships with some of the UK’s most prestigious landlords and developers, including The Crown Estate, British Land, Capco and Shaftesbury.

“Last year it helped create two of the capital’s most exciting new dining destinations – Kingly Court, W1, for Shaftesbury and Broadgate Circle for British Land and GIC.

“And the accolades kept coming. For the fourth consecutive year Davis Coffer Lyons retained its EGi Deals Completion title as the leisure and hotel sector’s most active agent in London for 2014.

“From helping to deliver new concepts from the team behind Bocca di Lupo to being appointed by The Savoy Hotel, WC2, to find a new tenant for Simpson’s-in-the-Strand, WC2, the group was at the heart of the burgeoning leisure scene throughout the year.

“Meanwhile, Coffer Corporate Leisure – the only dedicated property investment and mergers and acquisitions adviser to the leisure industry – advised on almost all the sector’s biggest transactions, including the sale of the Stonegate Pub investment portfolio totalling more than 100 sites for more than £100m.

“Our judges liked The Coffer Group’s ability to help clients deliver radical change and repositioning, often through securing an unexpected tenant mix.”

One judge said: “I like the fact they assist in making smaller, niche traders accessible to larger real estate sites.”

We couldn’t be more proud to win this award, and of our teams who’s enormous hard work and commitment to their clients has made it happen. The award was presented by Joanna Lumley and sponsor Conveyancing Risk Solutions to DCL’s Executive Director, Tracey Mills.
