Our commercial property expertise

We have a large team of commercial property experts with decades of combined experience. As such, we can offer seasoned advice and an efficient, reliable service for everything from straightforward matters to the most complex, high value commercial property transactions.

Our commercial property lawyers regularly handle multi-million pound transactions for clients across a range of sectors, so know exactly what is needed to ensure your requirements are dealt with on time and on budget.

With our expertise covering the full range of commercial property matters, for acquisitions and disposals to commercial leases, financing and dispute resolution, we offer a complete solution for every aspect of commercial property law.


Our commercial property services:


Buying and Selling Commercial Property

We act for clients across the full range of freehold and leasehold acquisitions and disposals, helping our clients to ensure their transactions can go ahead as smoothly as possible.

Our clients include businesses, investors, local authorities, public institutions (such as Network Rail), educational establishments and a wide variety of other individuals and organisations.

We will guide you through every stage of your transaction, ensuring you get the best possible deal and that your interests are protected at all times.


Property Development

We have helped companies and individuals including PLCs, local and national developers as well as joint venture structures and SPVs to deliver many successful developments.

Our work has included all aspects of the development process from site assembly, phased funding, public and private sector agreements as well as construction through to the asset management phase and eventually disposal. The process enables our team to work very closely with our clients as well as their contractors, consultants, funders and professional advisers.

In doing so, we gain an in depth knowledge of our clients’ businesses, which helps us to deliver focused advice that is tailored to specific demands. Where we really add value is in using this understanding to efficiently deliver the solutions so as to fit the developers’ goals. 


Investment Property

We advise in every type of property investment, so whether you have invested in a single property or a large property portfolio including office developments, an industrial estate or similar large-scale development, we will be able to provide tailored support to suit your needs.

The variety of clients presents our breadth of experience; we are constantly liaising with our clients and their tax advisers to come up with investment models that suit the specific transaction.

We also have close ties with all the local banks and financiers and are therefore familiar with their processes and requirements. We can provide concise, targeted advice that achieves your goals at a reasonable cost.


Landlords and Tenants

We have a clear understanding from both the landlord and tenant perspectives; we identify with the needs both sides have to create an amicable deal.

We recognise that as a landlord you need to maintain a balance between protecting your asset value against a desire to ensure that the asset produces income as quickly as possible.

If you are a tenant, you will be focused on taking possession of the property to coincide with your fit out and deliveries, but you will also need to look to the future to ensure that you have a fair lease that is also flexible, should your business not go as planned.

Balancing these objectives is our role and is one at which we excel. We will add significant value by finding an acceptable middle ground between the parties as quickly and amicably as possible.


Commercial Property Finance

We advise commercial property developers and investors looking to secure financing, as well as lenders that are offering development finance. Our expertise covers all types of secured lending for commercial property, so we can ensure no detail or potential problem is overlooked.

Our commercial property lawyers will ensure the terms of any finance agreement match your best interests, protecting your investment and limiting any risk. We can ensure all proper due diligence is undertaken and that full regulatory compliance is achieved.


Commercial Property Disputes

Disputes over commercial property matters can be very costly, time-consuming and disruptive. Our Commercial Litigation Team take a highly pragmatic, business-minded approach focused on getting the right outcome for your overall goals.

We are highly experienced in pursuing commercial property disputes for a wide range of clients and have a very strong track record of securing favourable outcomes for our clients without the need for court proceedings.

Our commercial property law fees

When dealing with any commercial property matter, cost is naturally a key concern.

We will provide a clear cost estimate at the outset which will then be reviewed at every stage of your case, so you always know exactly how much our legal services will cost.

We offer flexible fee structures to match your requirements, allowing us to offer the best possible service in a way that fits your budgetary requirements.


Fixed fee commercial property services

Where possible, we can agree a fixed price to handle specific commercial property matters, such as drafting contracts of sale or commercial leases. This gives you complete certainty over the costs involved.


Hourly rates for commercial property law services

For more complex matters, we will charge according to an agreed hourly rate based on the level of expertise required.
