The Mayer, Brown, Rowe & Maw LLP has advised Key Property Investments in its acquisition and leaseback of a portfolio of properties from ALSTOM for circa £112m.

The Portfolio comprises 19 properties in total, 17 in England and 2 in Scotland.

The deal (recognised in the real estate press as the most significant property outsourcing of 2002 [Property Week, 20 December 2002]) was completed from start to finish in just 6 weeks.

Real Estate partner Iain Thomas (supported by Stephanie Bates (corporate), Peter Steiner (tax) and Nigel White (finance)) led the Mayer, Brown, Rowe & Maw team advising Key Property Investments.
