Commercial Real Estate

Whether you are buying or selling commercial property, whether you are a landlord or a tenant, or whether you are a commercial property developer, there is considerable value at stake. It is important that your lawyers understand your commercial objectives, proceed with the transaction expeditiously so that it moves forward smoothly and mitigate risks.

Our lawyers have many years’ experience of assisting clients across all sectors including office, retail, hospitality and leisure and industrial, working closely with developers, owners, operators and funders. This includes working on acquisitions and disposals, restructuring of transactions and portfolios and due diligence and commercial advisory work.

Our lawyers work collaboratively as an extension of the client’s own team and with property professionals involved in the transaction in order to bring the matter to a successful conclusion. Our lawyers support each other across the commercial real estate practice area, so that the appropriate sector and commercial expertise is brought to bear in each transaction.

We act for a diverse range of parties, including sellers and buyers of commercial premises, landlords and tenants in the grant of commercial leases, for parties in retail, hospitality and leisure transactions and for large rural estates on all aspects of agricultural and farming real estate transactions. We also act for Self-Invested Personal Pension (SIPP) providers and SIPP investors in buying, selling or leasing commercial property through a SIPP.
