Who We Are
Everyone in our team has a voice and is given the opportunity to share ideas and opinions.
We are great at collaborating and are always willing to help one another.
We take the time to build good relationships with clients and tend to work with the same clients repeatedly, so we can build rapport with them and they get to know us.
We take the time to find out what the client values rather than taking a ‘one size fits all’ approach.
We are flexible and agile with how we approach things and are not scared to change our processes if something can be done more efficiently.
We embrace technology but still ensure this is in line with what is best for each client.
We have good cohesion and collaboration within our team – this enables us to provide a good, continuous service to the client (as opposed to working in silos where a client depends on one lawyer and no one else in the team is briefed on the matter). We support each other on deals.
We are personable and relaxed – we believe that clients want to work with people, not robots!
We are a young firm and team – not afraid to do things differently or to break the traditional law firm mould, investing in new systems and processes.
Our flexible working and autonomy lead to happier staff who want to support the firm in growing and succeeding.
We are a diverse bunch of individuals – we build relationships internally and externally.
We are collaborative – both with each other internally and with our clients to get a deal done.
We have the whole “deal” mentality – we see transactions in the same way as our clients do.

Real Estate sector focus
Unlike the majority of our competitors that are full-service law firms, our sole focus is on commercial real estate and real estate finance. This means everything we do at Newmanor is optimised to deliver best-in-class legal expertise for clients in the real estate industry.
Genuine fixed fees
Unlike most of our competitors we work on the basis of genuine fixed fees linked to a definitive scope of work. We do not provide estimates or quotes which lead to ambush billing on the eve of completion. We are able to do this because we don’t have time recording targets. This frees up our lawyers to focus on getting the deal done in the most effective and timely manner.
Push and tell
We proactively take ownership of your deals, pushing them forward and telling you what we have done. You will always know where we are on your deals and can take comfort that we are doing everything we can to ensure transactions run smoothly.
Small firm, big team
We are a boutique firm with a team of 14 lawyers – comprising legal assistants, paralegals, associates, partners and consultants – which is larger than the real estate departments and related finance teams of most competitor firms.
One team, no silos
We work as a team to get things done – there is no buck-passing between departments.
We actively seek your feedback, and we will action the points you identify.
Genuine client care
Our lawyers are promoted for caring about you and your business; not billing the life out of you. As part of this, we invest a lot of time with all clients getting to know them and trying to leverage our network to help them in any way we can. Your success is our success.
Every lawyer every time – We are committed to ensuing every one of our team members delivers excellent client service and this is enshrined in our Service Pledge.
