"Nicholas came to us, when our business was in a state of “flux” due to some bad planning decisions made by the then owners. The then owners were not prepared to engage with us over sound-proofing of our venue. So we operated for three years without any clear direction or plan. We then entered into discussions with Nicholas and found a way through whereby the venue survived and now thrives with the addition of good soundproofing. The Cowell Group acquired the site freehold and we have had five years of hassle free operation on our twenty yearlong commercial lease. We found The Cowell Group to be both pragmatic, empathic & attentive towards the needs of a small family business. Obviously, The Cowell Group need to see that there is a balanced positive outcome for their business, but hey that’s called balanced karma.”

“I have acted as solicitor to Nicholas and Adrian and the Cowell Group for almost 25 years, they are a pleasure to deal with and are one of my favourite clients. They are fun to work with and are a rarity in the property world as they treat people decently and honestly”.

“The Cowell Group are visionary and dynamic organisation with strong work ethics. They have ambitious but realistic plans for growth. They have an excellent track record of working in the public and private sector across all tenures including commercial and hotel development. They deliver the highest quality sustainable schemes to achieve positive and successful outcomes. I have worked with the group for several years across the UK and most notably on a high end scheme in St Johns Wood worth over £30m. I found them to be completely honest, trustworthy and with the highest standards of integrity. They are imaginative and creative in their approach and can complete deals expeditiously. The whole team are very experienced, warm and welcoming. I can honestly recommend them as a great partner to work with.”

“I have known and worked with the Cowell Group for a number of years and all our dealings have to date been honourable, fair and enjoyable. What has always been apparent is their ability to secure and work a transaction through a commercial approach (by Nicholas and Adrian and their extended team) that creates added value to the assets they look to acquire and/or manage and/or in which they are otherwise involved. A good example of such approach was borne out on the development site in which they were involved at St Edmunds Terrace, St John's Wood which was acquired from the Guinness Trust.”

Nick Doffman Partner, Head of Real Estate, Mishcon de Reya LLP

“Lovell Properties Limited have worked with Adrian Levy of the Cowell Group on many projects over the years and we have always found them as very professional and pleased with the outcome.”
