Every industry has been forced to adapt to a ‘new normal’ over the past few years, but perhaps none more so than the commercial real estate industry. The pandemic years have resulted in seismic shifts that have directly affected commercial real estate as we know it: the evolving role of physical workplaces as we adapt to hybrid working patterns and the changing face of retail, leisure and hospitality, to name just a few. All the while, the climate crisis and financial precarity loom.

For legal professionals serving the commercial real estate industry, the challenges are numerous, acute and constantly developing. We explored some of these challenges and identified key themes affecting the sector in 2022 and beyond in our upcoming report, Building for a Stable Future: Legal Firm Perspectives on Commercial Real Estate.  

Ahead of its launch, we are delighted to welcome two report contributors, James Cottrell (Taylor Walton) and Ryan Davies (Gowling WLG), as guest speakers at this free webinar. Together with Tracy Burtwell (Searchflow), they will discuss: 

  • The commercial impact of hybrid working on law firms 
  • How AI and automation will help law firms manage rising costs, and maintain efficient and speedy transaction processes that meet the demands and expectations of their clients 
  • The evolving role of data in surfacing critical insights in commercial real estate 
  • The emergence of environmental, social and governance (ESG) as a strategic priority and how law firms can best support their clients 

Register today to join us and preview our upcoming report’s main themes and messages, drawn from in-depth interviews and experts’ candid reflections on the next few years for the commercial real estate industry.
