Leading independent business law firm Hall & Wilcox has once again demonstrated its property sector credentials by advising Aventus Property Group (formerly BBRC Property) in a major transaction across three states.

Hall & Wilcox’s property team, led by Partner Natalie Bannister and including Special Counsel Richard Skopal, worked with Aventus Property Fund in relation to the transaction of three bulky goods centres in Victoria, New South Wales and Queensland. This complex matter involved three separate vendors and simultaneous settlements in Sydney and Melbourne, and was related to the recent listing of the Aventus Retail Property Fund.

Natalie Bannister commented: “Aventus are a long standing client of the firm. We are delighted to have been able to support them with this transaction, coordinating all aspects across both our Sydney and Melbourne offices to ensure simultaneous completion as required by our client.”

Hall & Wilcox also worked alongside Herbert Smith Freehills advising on due diligence and the preparation of disclosure documentation for the listing of Aventus Retail Property Fund.
