Collas Crill's corporate, finance and funds team has advised Invesco Real Estate on the offshore security elements of a recent lending transaction.
The Jersey-based Collas Crill team, which included Group Partner Matt Gilley and Associate Alexander Price, worked alongside Invesco's onshore counsel Fieldfisher.
The teams advised on a £30 million loan secured against a portfolio of light urban industrial spaces across London, configured to be let to multiple catering and delivery tenants.
These spaces, known as 'dark kitchens', are a burgeoning new asset class, helping to meet the growing demand for food delivery services in the capital by offering multiple occupants a space from which to run such businesses.
Matt Gilley said: 'We were delighted to support Fieldfisher and Invesco on the Jersey law elements of this novel transaction.
'Dark kitchens are a relatively new entrant to the world of real estate finance, arising to meet changing consumer needs and habits in the wake of the pandemic. As such, this was a first for the Collas Crill team and it was great to play our part.'
