The contract with the FTSE 100 retailer, already a client of the Group's insurance services division, took effect on 1 September and will be for an initial period of one year, with the possibility of a further one year extension. The work will be led for DWF by real estate partner, Damian Fleming.
Damian said: "We are delighted to have been appointed to support Tesco with its property-related legal services. Tesco is a familiar presence in towns and cities across the UK and as the country's largest grocery retailer its physical stores are a key pillar of critical infrastructure.
"We are proud to have been selected to support them in managing this substantial portfolio and look forward to working closely with their team."
