Events & Webinars, Insights

Senior specialists from our property and construction team were at MIPIM 2023 in March.

Taking place in Cannes on 14-17 March, MIPIM provides a marketplace for international and domestic investors, developers, occupiers and property professionals to build connections and do business. It includes conferences, exhibitions and networking events.

Property and construction have long been specialist areas at BKL, forming the largest single industry sector in our client base. Our team advises clients in the residential, commercial and retail sectors, from individuals to large corporate groups.

Jason Appel is BKL’s Head of Property and Construction. He has worked at BKL for nearly 20 years. His property expertise covers small and large deals in investment, development, residential, commercial and student accommodation.

Jason’s advice includes efficient structures for tax planning and risk, the Construction Industry Scheme and the importance of getting good advice upfront with any property deal.

Myfanwy Neville is another of our business advisory and tax partners. She joined the firm in 2001 and has been a partner for 12 years. Her specialisms in the property sector include investment and development for large family groups, unusual projects and overseas investment in UK property, as well as the effect of ESG requirements on property businesses.

Myfanwy’s advice includes structuring property deals so they are tax-efficient and explaining the financing in a way that works for each individual client. Myfanwy won the Women in Finance Accountancy Leader of the Year award in 2017.
