Matthew Stannard Director London +44 (0)20 7728 2238

I am an experienced real estate tax professional with a unique skillset having worked across both private equity and listed real estate sectors. My clients include UK and overseas property investors and developers and pan-European property funds. I have expertise in advising listed real estate businesses, including setting up UK REITs.

Having worked on the client side I bring a unique insight to any transaction. When problem solving for clients, I combine my technical expertise with an overarching commercial approach. My recent experience includes the following:

  • providing advice on converting to a UK REIT and becoming a public company
  • advice on setting up a pan-European real estate investment platform
  • due diligence and structuring for a complex corporate transaction
  • advice on steps and tax implications of group simplification
  • complex tax compliance affairs for groups and funds

Outside of work I enjoy spending time with my wife and two young daughters, where we enjoy walking and cycling in the countryside. My other passions include international travel, cooking, skiing and rowing (when I get the time).
