The firm's Real Estate practice in London was acknowledged in the Real Estate: Lower Mid-Market category and praised for their experience in all types of real estate transactions, including finance, investment, development and joint venture matters. "They are commercial in their approach to problems, pragmatic and helpful, and very sensible in the advice that they give," said one client.
Katten was also spotlighted in the Hotels & Leisure–UK-wide category. The publication highlighted Katten for its strong real estate offering with notable experience in the hospitality sector. "The firm is professional in its approach and represents its clients' interests very well," an interviewee said.

He was lauded for his work mainly on mid-market transactions for clients seeking to develop or invest in commercial property, particularly with regard to the hotels and leisure sector. According to one source, "He's a very straightforward, responsive and pragmatic individual — he is someone I'd want on my side when dealing with a difficult matter."
Ranked in the Tax-London category, Sallabank was commended for advising clients on the tax structuring and planning of corporate transactions. "She has the tremendous ability to 'issue-spot' and think through thorny issues," one commentator said.
