Sarah Conway

Spear's Review

For Sarah Conway, transactions valued at over £10 million are something of her bread and butter.‘I certainly enjoyed it far more than doing supermarket sweeps or big office buildings,’ she has told Spear’s.

The real estate group head started the practice at Maurice Turnor Gardner in January 2013 after transferring from Allen & Overy.

After 30 years in her field, Conway knows all too well that property is highly personal. ‘You can buy the biggest buildings and it’s all on a commercial base – nobody will have any emotion about it. But the CEO of a company who decides to buy his beautiful apartment or beautiful house? It’s an emotional thing.’

Adviser Profile

Sarah Conway joined Maurice Turnor Gardner (MTG) in January 2013 to head up the real estate department after 15 years with Allen & Overy. With 30 years of experience in London's prime residential market, she specialises in high value and complex residential real estate transactions including country houses and landed estates.

She has an international client base of UHNWs which includes royalty, industrialists, media and tech entrepreneurs. Conway is on call 24/7 to ensure that she can support her clients through different time zones.

Conway travels extensively to the Middle East and Asia to maintain her relationships and provide updates on the UK market which she sees as an important part of her practice. Conway is described in the market as ‘a wonderful, brilliant and charming lawyer, communicative and dedicated to getting every deal over the line’. Conway is a market leading lawyer who has built a strong team able to advise on the most challenging and high-profile transactions. Edward Burton joined her from Allen & Overy and he is recognised as ‘incredibly bright - without doubt one of the best property lawyers in London’. Conway was delighted that Burton became a partner in May 2020.

Conway prides herself that all matters are partner led as clients' needs are of the utmost importance to her. Conway and Burton regularly act on super prime transactions which are often reported to be the largest deals recorded at the land registry in individual months. Conway and Burton are seen as the ‘go-to’ team for the highest value, most time pressured and complex deals.

Conway provides not only strength and depth of advice in terms of the diverse areas of residential property but, in conjunction with the firm's band 1 private wealth tax team, can offer clients a complete global solution.
