Charkham brings more than 19 years of legal and real estate experience advising tenants, particularly American subsidiaries of Israeli and British companies, on their real estate strategies including the acquisition and disposition of office space.
"Richard joins us with a great deal of success in working with clients overseas and throughout the United States," said Joseph Harbert, president of Colliers International’s Eastern Region. "With his combination of real estate and legal experience he most certainly will be an asset to the Collier’s team, helping us serve corporate clients in a highly strategic fashion."
Charkham has completed transactions in multiple markets around the world, including the US headquarters of The Economist Newspaper Group, Institutional Investor, Sentinel Real Estate, CFO Publishing, Human Rights First, Amdocs, NICE Systems, and Comverse.
