What makes us different?

Across the firm, we are commercially aware and pro-active.

This enables us to identify any potential problems and develop the robust solutions to counter them.

Everything you need in one place

In our experience, every transaction has its own characteristics and may not always fall conveniently into one category. That is why we always take an interactive approach, working seamlessly to provide the support you need. Where appropriate, we will source particular expertise as needed, both within the firm and outside. Therefore, we can provide you with accurate advice not only on the conveyancing process itself but also in relation to allied property issues including:

  • Planning
  • Taxation
  • Dispute resolution
  • Corporate structures
  • Licensing
  • Overseas clients

The areas of commercial property law we cover include:

  • Acquisition and disposal of industrial, commercial and retail properties either singly or as a portfolio
  • Ownership issues

Secured Lending

The commercial property law team acts for banks and other commercial and private lenders providing loans secured on land and buildings. From the initial drafting of the loan agreement and title investigation, to completion of the security – we take care of everything. In cases of default, we provide guidance on the various enforcement options open to lenders.

Landlord and Tenant

The law of Landlord and Tenant is a complex area. Commercial leases require particular care in their consideration, as the interests of Landlord and Tenant will often be very different.

  • Security of tenure
  • General property management issues

Our commercial property team work closely with our employment and business solicitors and the litigation team as your case requires.
