Karin Horsley


An attentive lawyer, who guides clients through the complexities of property law.

Head of Greenwoods GRM’s real estate team, Karin believes it is vital to develop an understanding of clients’ businesses so that we can provide the best possible service. Her approach is to work with clients – to be part of their team, to understand their needs and to deliver the outcome they require as effectively and efficiently as possible.  She encourages team members to get out to see properties and sites and to meet the people involved.  This approach brings transactions to life for everyone.

Amongst commentators, Karin is regarded as ‘very experienced’ and ‘absolutely excellent in terms of property law’ (Chambers and Partners 2017).  She has won praise from clients for her ‘strong leadership and skill at managing complex deals’ and for being ‘particularly skilled at handling property portfolio concerns for corporate clients’ (Chambers and Partners 2016).

A real estate lawyer for over thirty-five years, Karin has amassed a wealth of experience in all aspects of property transactions.  Karin acts for a wide variety of clients. Some recent examples include:

  • overseas investors who are building up a portfolio of multi-million-pound properties;
  • business clients requiring new office premises in London; and
  • clients acquiring development sites for new flagship premises.

Karin successfully uses her substantial expertise and knowledge of her clients’ property requirements to become an integral part of their ‘teams’.  This has been demonstrated in particular this year by a client’s confidence that she and her team could perform all the real estate requirements of an IPO worth over £40 million – a well-placed confidence resulting in a successful outcome.  Under Karin’s leadership, our commercial property team met all the critical time scales and provided a full and high standard support to our client and its corporate and investment banker’s lawyers.

Karin’s interests have expanded to gardening during the lockdown, so she spends a lot of time digging and weeding in the company of her family and pet Labrador, Smirnoff.
