First and foremost we are property professionals. We work with you proactively to better understand the risks you face and guide you through to achieve your results

How we can help

We work across a wide range of real estate matters, from high quality transactional work to property litigation, planning, portfolio management, environmental law and regulatory support.

Whether you are a corporate occupier, investor, developer or construction company, we will visit your sites to find out what is important to you and your business. This ensures that we understand your objectives and can offer real value when you need it the most.

When it comes to transactions, we believe the lawyers working on ‘opposite sides’ can only be truly effective if they work together towards a shared goal. So, we work with you, our counterpart lawyers, and your wider professional team to deliver the most cost effective outcomes in the quickest possible timescales. We’ll protect your brand and reputation whilst still considering your best interests.

The most productive relationships are built on trust, which is why we always protect your brand and reputation first. We keep our word, keep to timings and are contactable as and when you need us.

Expertise

Property developers

We see development as the life-blood of the property industry. As developers, you need to understand the market for the buildings you create and demonstrate a vision that offers more than is available from existing stock.

You then have to persuade someone to let you build it and raise finance in a difficult environment for borrowing on property projects. Often you carry the greatest risk, particularly in a market where property values are fluid.

We understand the development process, from planning and construction through to disposal. We are a key part of your development team, helping you make the most of your opportunities and managing the risk inherent in any development.

Property investors

Property is still a popular asset class. The ride can get bumpy, but property never really goes out of fashion. Bricks and mortar have the attraction of a tangible asset with an underlying value and the potential to produce an income.

With the UK property market firmly split into ‘prime’ and ‘secondary’, investors are increasingly looking at opportunities to increase the value of more secondary assets through pro-active management, re-gearing leases and encouraging their tenants to commit to premises for the longer term. Of course, owning property is not without its downside. Tenant default and empty rates can soon transform a property into a liability and wreck the capital value of your portfolio.

Our considerable experience extends to all of the legal issues around buying, leasing and selling commercial property investments. We will be with you all the way to ensure the right balance is struck between keeping your assets producing income and their future marketability.

We also act for a number of large occupiers and have a good grasp on what is and is not acceptable to most tenants in getting deals done.
