I am a Partner in the Trethowans Commercial Property Team, based primarily in the Salisbury office. My work involves acting for businesses, pension schemes and individual clients in acquiring and disposing of commercial properties, which include retail premises, industrial units and mixed-use developments. I also assist clients in granting or taking commercial leases and specialise in property pension investment transactions.
Thank you so much for the way you have worked through this project. I have been very impressed with your professionalism, swiftness of response & obvious knowledge of the subject matter. Rowanmoor Pension Scheme member
