Property

Our Commercial Property Solicitors are recognised internationally for their commercial and pragmatic approach to commercial property transactions and advice. As a result the Group and its team members are annually recognised as being leaders in their field. Our focus is always on the solution rather than the problem.

Our aim is to put you and your commercial needs first. Advice is provided proactively and commercially. We pride ourselves on the long standing relationships we have with a multitude of national and regional clients and professionals. However we never take those relationships for granted and appreciate that our enviable reputation in the commercial property sector is only as good as the last piece of work we undertake for a client.

The Commercial Property Group is one of the largest in the region and as a result we can allocate resources flexibly within the team to meet yours needs as client at a competitive cost. The size of the Group allows specialism within the Group (particularly relating to pensions property advice and property finance).

By way of example specific property services provided by the Group include:

Acquisition and disposal of commercial property
Leases of commercial property (acting for both landlord and tenant)
Specialist team working in pensions property transactions for which we are recognised as one of the top firms in the UK
Property finance (acting either for lender or borrower)
The development of property (including acquisition infrastructure set up, Option Agreements and Pre-Emption Agreements and Conditional Contracts)
Commercial property management work (e.g. Renewal Lease, Licences to Assign, Alter, etc.)
Resolution of commercial property disputes.
