      With 30+ years’ experience, James’s knowledge of his towns and occupiers is exceptional – he knows how to make transactions work but also enjoys working with clients and occupiers.

      James Lankfer

      Ever the modest character and with a dry sense of humour, James claims that ‘a bit of grey hair goes a long way’ - he’s built his significant experience and knowledge across 30+ years in the industry.

       

      As head of the retail and leisure team, James enjoys his leading role and gets immense satisfaction from working with his colleagues - in his words, this is what he particularly loves about his job. As a result, clients also enjoy working with him and his playful character.

      James’s areas of expertise are in development advice for mixed-use schemes, food stores and retail warehousing, as well as in the acquisition and disposal of motor dealerships, retail and restaurant properties, hotels and care homes.

      His knowledge of the ever-evolving retail and leisure market, the variety of deals he has done, his tenacious attitude and the kick he gets out of problem solving, even as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic, is why his portfolio clients trust and keep coming back to him.
