The Real Estate department of a global law firm approached LOD as they were in urgent need of a team of experienced real estate lawyers. The project involved the review of over 60 certificates of title on behalf of the law firm’s buyer client. The transaction, which had an extremely tight deadline, was more than just a processing exercise. It required a team of lawyers with the ability and experience to analyse the certificates and highlight any key issues.
LOD quickly assembled a team of experienced real estate lawyers who would work entirely remotely with the law firm client on the transaction. LOD’s delivery manager project managed the team from LOD HQ in London and liaised directly with the law firm client team. Over a two month period, the LOD lawyers reviewed the certificates of title, raised detailed enquiries about them and ensured that they were in a suitable form. The team also produced an overview report on each property for the client and for their bankers, which highlighted any key issues revealed by the certificates of title.
The transaction team that LOD put together worked seamlessly and efficiently with our team. The work required of the LOD team was a significant piece of the overall transaction and it was essential that we could rely on them to deliver a quality product on time and on budget. They did not let us down. The LOD team were experienced, conscientious and hit every deadline, delivering a final product which was to a high standard, at an extremely competitive fixed cost. The project management element was also very well executed and was an essential part of the successful delivery of the project.
