Property Search

Patrick Ryan



I have 25 years’ experience across Central London advising both landlords and occupiers on their property strategies, with a proven track record of identifying ‘off market’ opportunities that place clients at a competitive advantage.

Having joined Gerald Eve in 2018, I head up our West End occupier team. My experience delivers up structured and achievable property strategies for CEOs, CFOs, MDs and other key decision makers.

I work with clients to identify their operational, human resources and financial requirements, enabling selection of the most effective workspaces for their business needs. This involves creating exit strategies for existing properties, negotiating lease terms for new space and defining relocation timescales.

I advise a variety of private equity, hedge fund, retailer and tech clients.

My occupier briefs include Ocado, Charterhouse Capital, Byron Burger, August Equity, Dunedin LLP, Lubbock Fine, Swarovski, Tyndaris, Mid Europa Partners, Dunedin, General Optical Council, Lubbock Fine, Prezzo, MiddleCap, Cummins Engineering, Smurfit Kappa, Forrester Research.

My other significant previous occupier clients include; Apax Partners, Manpower Group, Facebook, Apple, Oaktree Capital, Rightmove, Institute of Directors and Ferrexpo.



  • Tishman Speyer – I advise on their 80,000 sq ft Smithson Plaza landmark building in St James’s, formerly ‘Economist Plaza’ where we successfully let the top floors at record West End rents. We are now close to fully letting this trophy building.
  • Charterhouse Capital Partners – I undertook a detailed search of the City and West End office market to identify new 30,000 sq ft offices for this leading private equity company. I secured the top floor offices at Belgrave House, Buckingham Palace Road, Victoria.
  • Ocado – I am undertaking a detailed search of the entire London office market to identify offices for part of this expanding tech retailer. This requirement needs to identify 25-30,000 sq ft that attracts and retains key employees. We are shortlisting options and advising them on their short term serviced office requirements.
