Kassra is a partner in our real estate department who specialises in property development and regeneration schemes, acting for both public and private sector clients.

Kassra has been with the firm since 2010 and is based primarily in Nottingham but acts for clients nationwide. Kassra specialises in development and strategic land transactions, acting for landowners and developers on option and promotion agreements for housing-led developments as well as acting for local authorities and government agencies on residential, mixed-use and commercial developments. His experience of acting for a wide range of clients – landowners, developers, public sector, promoters - gives Kassra an understanding of all the players in a property development and he can guide clients through the competing demands and conflicts that will arise along the way.

Kassra organises the firm’s Private Sector Development Club, a quarterly workshop for our private sector development clients.
