Property can present one of the largest financial commitments for any business so you need a safe pair of hands. Our team of commercial property lawyers has the experience, knowledge and expertise to guide you through your property needs from start to finish, whether you are buying, leasing or selling. We tailor our service to your timescales and budget to make sure you meet your commercial objectives, whilst also offering a wider view of your property interests to highlight future opportunities and minimise risks.

We work with a wide range of clients throughout the UK, including developers, property investors, major corporations, public bodies, schools, owner occupiers, retailers, landlords, tenants and entrepreneurs.

The value of the transactions we handle range from the purchase of a £10million building in London, to the sale of an industrial unit in Manchester for under £100,000. No matter what the size or complexity, we can provide the experience and expertise needed to get the deal done.

We work in true partnership with our clients combining personality with professionalism and a passion for what we do.

Where needed we are able to call on the expertise of our dedicated planning and property litigation lawyers to ensure an all round service is provided.
