Real estate

At First Names Group we’re driven not only by our extensive experience of commercial and residential real estate structuring, but by a genuine commitment to our clients. Our director-led, international real estate teams make the effort to fully understand our clients’ objectives and build our teams around each client, matching expertise to ambitions, to ensure optimum service delivery.


The ‘First Names’ in real estate

For over 25 years, our real estate experts have established structures through which we provide end-to-end support services, including domiciliation, company secretarial, financial reporting and banking and cash management.

Don’t just take our word for it

“We have found First Names Group to have an exceptional understanding and experience of corporate real estate structures; a key but sometimes rare attribute in offshore trustees. They have proven themselves to be commercially aware, knowledgeable and committed to ensuring our expectations have been met. We look forward to continuing to work with them into the future and would have no hesitation in recommending them to other asset managers or property owners.”

– Paddy Greenwood, Rock Asset Management

“We have worked with First Names Group for a number of years. The team are friendly and professional, deal with matters in a timely manner and show a very good understanding of the issues involved. They add value to relationships, are prepared to assist our business wherever they are able to do so, and go the extra mile even though there may be no benefit to themselves.”

– James John, Partner / Head of Real Estate, Rooks Rider Solicitors LLP
