The Legal Guide 500 has named Nick Smith, UK Legal Counsel for Prologis UK, Real Estate Individual of the Year in its 2019 awards.
The awards, which recognise the most capable, expert practitioners and firms operating at the top of their game, across a number of business sectors, are based on months of thorough research and interviews conducted by a team of experienced researchers in accordance with strict guidelines.
“It’s great to win this award and to be recognised by my fellow professionals,” Nick explains. “It’s certainly not something I was expecting. The Legal 500 team researched our in-house expertise and placed great importance on our relationship with our stakeholders. This recognition is testament to the hard work put in by what is a small team at Prologis, and the small panel of external lawyers that we work closely with to deliver deals pragmatically, efficiently and effectively.”
Nick, who heads up the UK Legal Team and is a member of the Prologis UK executive team, has over 20 years of commercial property experience and considerable experience in taking schemes from initial due diligence, through acquisition, development and letting and finally, into asset management.
“The Legal Guide 500 is the definitive guide to the best law firms and lawyers in the country,” Nick concludes. “At a time of huge growth in the industrial logistics sector, this is a glowing endorsement of the work we do and is fantastic for all the team.”
