OUR HISTORY

ALMA was co-founded in January 2015 by Marc Ferster and Alex Brown, two real estate lawyers with extensive City law firm experience.

Having worked for a number of years with leading firms King & Wood Mallesons and Eversheds, Marc and Alex saw an opportunity to establish a Manchester based “on demand” provider offering a City quality service at a lower cost than our London-based competitors.

We work closely with King & Wood Mallesons and Ashurst and are currently the sole providers of on demand resource to their respective real estate teams.
