Commercial property

When it comes to commercial property transactions, pragmatism is key. Whether you are a business owner or developer, your property is a valuable asset and you need to be able to make informed decisions to protect your financial security. Buying and selling commercial property can have significant long-term advantages, but it does involve complicated legal procedures. Our aim is to take stress away from you. By acting as an extension of your team, we will help you achieve your commercial property goals and take strategic steps to safeguard your assets.

Key Contacts


Commercial property covers all manner of transactions and issues. You might be a business looking to purchase long-term premises or find commercial lettings, or a developer in pursuit of a new project. Your property might need renovating or your venture could be an entirely new construction surrounded by environmental or planning issues. Perhaps you are experiencing disputes with lease contracts, nuisance and boundaries. However complex or stressful your situation, you can rely on our commercial property solicitors’ expertise, pragmatism and tenacious determination to provide clear, informed guidance on every decision you need to make.

Taking a collaborative approach, we aim to be your long-term partner so that you have an expert on hand whenever an issue arises. Many of our solicitors have practised in City and national firms and are ranked by Chambers and Partners and Legal 500. This means they have exceptional subject knowledge and a track record of success, both in mediation and at trial, so you can feel confident with their advice.

We will work closely with you to make sure you understand the legal and financial implications of issues relating to your commercial property. We also use a transparent fee framework, ensuring you are always clear on costs.
